Raspberry Crumble Bars Recipe


If you’re seeking the perfect dessert that marries sweet and tart, look no further than these delectable Raspberry Crumble Bars. They’re as delightful to make as they are to taste. A buttery crust, a layer of fresh raspberry, and a crumbly topping – what’s not to love?


For this recipe, you will need:

  • 200g (1 cup) of sugar
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) of baking powder
  • 280g (2 cups) of all-purpose flour
  • 200g (1 cup) of cold unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp (1.25 ml) of salt
  • 1 pinch of ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 4 cups (500g) of fresh raspberries
  • 400g (2 cups) of sugar for the fruit
  • 3 tsp (15 ml) of cornstarch


Follow these steps to create your Raspberry Crumble Bars:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F (190C) and grease a 9×13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together 1 cup sugar, flour, and baking powder.
  3. Add salt and cinnamon, and then the butter and egg. Use a fork or your hands to blend in the butter until the dough is crumbly. Press half of the dough into your prepared pan.
  4. In another bowl, stir together the sugar and cornstarch for the fruit. Gently mix in the raspberries. Sprinkle the raspberry mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble the remaining dough over the berry layer.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is slightly brown. Once it’s done, let it cool completely before cutting into squares.


Remember, the secret to a crumbly crust is to use cold butter. And when pressing the dough into your pan, don’t press too hard. We want a light, crumbly texture, not a dense one. Also, while fresh raspberries are ideal, you can substitute with frozen raspberries when they are not in season.


And there you have it! Enjoy these delightful Raspberry Crumble Bars as a delicious after-dinner dessert or a sweet snack. Baking from scratch has never been this simple or tasty. Happy baking!
