Blueberry Crumble

Another in my "blueberry series" recipes.

My granddad - I get all of my baking skills from him! - makes a delicious peach and blueberry crumble. I know I have the recipe somewhere but couldn't readily find it so I just winged-it in making this Blueberry Crumble. I get into the differences between crumbles, crisps, and other fruit desserts with toppings in my Blueberry Crisp post.

For this recipe, similar to the crisp, I mixed the blueberries with a little flour (to thicken the juices), sugar, spices, and lemon juice/zest. For the crumble topping, I used flour, a little semolina flour, brown sugar, spices, lemon zest, vanilla, egg, and melted butter.

fresh blueberries

adding the dry ingredients

mix until well coated and set aside. The sugar brings out the blueberry juices

mise en place...a bit of this, a bit of that

mix the dry ingredients together

cut in the egg until the mixture starts to clump up

spread over the blueberries in your baking dish

drizzle the melted butter over the top

and bake until the juices bubble up through the crust

so delicious!

Bye for now...
