Saskatoon Berry Cream Cheese Crumb Cake

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"Delicious cross between a crisp and a crumb cake. Saskatoon berries (or blueberries) and cream cheese flavours go so well together. Cake will be a little crumbly to eat, but it is very, very delicious!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan.
  2. Whisk brown sugar, 1 1/2 cups flour, oats, and cinnamon together in a bowl; gradually stir in oil until mixture is crumbly. Press half the crumb mixture into the prepared pan; set remaining crumbs aside for topping.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 10 minutes. Remove crust from oven and cool slightly, leaving oven on.
  4. Place serviceberries and water in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes; stir in lemon juice. Whisk white sugar and 2 tablespoons flour together in a small bowl; stir sugar mixture into berries and cook until the mixture begins to thicken, about 3 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes; pour berry filling over crumb crust.
  5. Sprinkle cream cheese pieces evenly over berry filling. Spread remaining crumb mixture over cream cheese layer and press gently with a potato masher.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until crumb topping is golden and filling is bubbly, about 40 minutes.

Loved this recipe! It came out delicious. I used bag of frozen mixed berries instead and cut down on sugar (for crumb layer used 1 cup and for berry layer about 1/2 cup brown sugar in both cases...

This was my first time using Saskatoon berries. As I had never tried these berries before I made a couple of individual ones with the mixtures. One I added the cream cheese, and the other I used...

Its a good recipe, a little more work than most crisps. I've also used it with cherries, using less sugar.

Made exactly to recipe. Very good however quite sweet. Next time will cut back on the sugar in the crumb layer.
