I combined two of my favorite breakfast products, Kodiak Cakes flapjack mix and Uncle Sam original cereal, to make one of my favorite deserts – berry crumble. Serve it plain or topped with vanilla ice cream.
Solar Blackberry Crumble
1 can (15-ounce) blackberries in light syrup, drained, liquid reserved (any kind of canned berries can be used)
1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch
3 tablespoons sugar, divided*
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup Kodiak Cakes flapjack mix
1/4 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
2/4 cup Uncle Sam Original cereal
Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Spray 4 metal cups or ceramic ramekins with cooking spray; set aside.
In a small sauce pan, gradually whisk 1/3 cup of the drained blackberry liquid into the corn starch. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. Remove from heat. Gently stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, the blackberries, and lemon juice; set aside.
In a medium bowl, use you fingers to work the butter into the flapjack mix until pea sized clumps are formed. Continue using your fingers to mix in the cereal.
Divide the blackberry mixture evenly among the prepared baking cups. Sprinkle 1/4 of the flapjack mixture over the berries, pressing gently into the filling. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon. Place the cups in a baking pan and bake in the Sun Oven until the filling is bubbling and the topping is golden, about 40 minutes.
Makes 4 servings.
*Add more sugar if you prefer a sweeter snack. With just 3 tablespoons this desert is not very sweet (but I like it that way).
