Description

This blueberry crumble recipe is a favorite! The nostalgic summer dessert stars a sweet tart fruit filling topped with buttery crumbles.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen*)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (or vegan butter)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Make the filling: In a medium bowl, mix the blueberries, ½ cup sugar, cornstarch, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, allspice, and lemon zest. Pour into a round 9-inch pie pan, 9 x 9 inch baking dish or 7 x 11 baking dish.
  3. Make the topping: In a medium bowl, add the remaining ½ cup sugar, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, flour, baking powder and kosher salt. Mix together with a fork. Pour in the melted butter while mixing with the fork until a crumbly mixture forms. Use your fingers to sprinkle the crumbles evenly over the filling.
  4. Bake: Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until the top is evenly golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Cool for 1 hour, then serve. You can leave it out on the counter for up to 1 day (covered, at night) so the topping can stay crisp. After 1 day, refrigerate any leftovers. It also freezes well for several months in a sealed container; reheat it in a 350 degree oven until bubbly.

Notes

*No need to defrost frozen berries before using. Note that storebought frozen berries can be a little more tart than fresh berries; if desired, add a hint more sugar to the filling (to taste).
