Saskatoon Berry Cream Cheese Crumb Cake

Ingredients

Crumb Layer:

  • 1 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup of vegetable oil

Berry Layer:

Cream Cheese Layer:

  • 4 ounce of cream cheese, diced

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8-inch square baking pan. If using Freeze Dried berries rehydrate the berries in warm water for 20 minutes
  2. Whisk brown sugar, 1 1/2 cups of 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 Saskatoon Berries and water in saucepan. If you are using freeze dried berries drain the water after rehydrating the berries and add the berries to pot. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes; stir in lemon juice. Whisk white sugar and 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 over berry filling. Spread remaining crumb mixture over cream cheese layer and press gently with a potato masher.
  6. Bake in the pre heated oven until crumb topping is golden and filling is bubbly, about 40 minutes.
