Blueberry Crumble

March 27, 2014

Fresh fruit is my favorite thing for dessert, and it only gets better when plump blueberries are paired with just enough sugar to create a luscious sauce. Topped with a lightly sweetened crumble and accessorized with a scoop of vanilla gelato, the flavor combinations will make your toes tingle with happiness. The leftovers are great for breakfast, served with plain yogurt. If there are any leftovers, that is.

Blueberry Crumble Recipe

For Topping

1 c all-purpose flour

1 c sugar

1 tsp baking powder

2 eggs, beaten lightly

Fresh blueberries make a great crisp.

Using plump blueberries makes all the difference in keeping the flavors fresh, balancing fruit and sweetness.

For Blueberry Filling

2 T all-purpose flour

3/4 c sugar

5-6 oz containers fresh blueberries, rinsed

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

The crisp is best served at room temperature, so let it rest a bit after coming out of the oven.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, and baking powder, mixing well. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and add eggs, mixing with fingers until the topping is crumbly. Set aside.

Mix flour and sugar in a small bowl.

Place rinsed berries in a large bowl and sprinkle with flour and sugar mixture, tossing gently to coat berries evenly. Transfer berry mixture to buttered 9 x 9 inch square baking dish. Sprinkle topping over berries, and drizzle with butter.

Place baking dish on a cookie sheet to prevent oven messes. Bake for 45 minutes, or until bubbling. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Warm berries by firelight. Friends and family. A touch of vanilla gelato. Isn't this the definition of happiness?

If you’d like a great after dinner pairing, there is nothing better than a glass of Rutherglen Chambers Rosewood Muscadelle (Tokay). Priced right at around $15 for a .375 ml bottle, this amber dessert wine is similar to a good quality madeira, and compliments fruity desserts with elements of dried fruit, almond, orange peel, and clove aromas.
