There is just something about a golden brown, slightly crunchy, and slightly soft sugar cookie topping, baked on a fruit dessert.
I think I became obsessed with crumbles after we started making strawberry rhubarb crumble all the time.
I began thinking that I could use the crumble just like others use a “crisp”, and top whatever baked fruits I wanted too. Thus began my obsession!
I’ve never really seen too many blueberry apple dishes before. Most things are either apple or blueberry, not a combination of the two.
Of course I never follow any baking rules, so I paired the two together to see what would happen.
Actually, I had some blueberries that I was worried were going to go bad, and I didn’t have enough to do an all blueberry dish, so I used the only other fruit that I just so happened to have had on hand. It turned out delicious and everybody loved it!
Why aren’t there nuts in this topping?
Nuts are usually present in the toppings of fruit crisps. However, you do do you, and if you want chopped nuts in the topping, go for it!
I would do chopped pecans, about 1/4th cup.
No oats in the topping?
No. Kelsie has an oat allergy, so we do crumbles without. If you want oat, add 1/4 cup when making the crumble.
Can you freeze Blueberry Apple Crumble?
Yes! Make it all the way, without baking.
Wrap tightly in press and seal wrap. Freeze for up to 2 months.
When ready to bake, from frozen, remove from the freezer, and bake at 350 degrees, for an hour.
What other fruits can you use?
I have several crumbles listed below, but here are some suggestions.
Peaches and pears would be my to choices to pair with blueberries
Yummy ideas to serve this crumble:
Topped this with ice cream or whipped cream – both would be perfect.
Here are some of our favorite crumble recipes:
- 4 apples peeled, cored, and sliced 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick
- 1 1/2 cups blueberries
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter cut into small pieces
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 stick butter room temperature
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a small baking dish.
- Combine the apples, blueberries, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice in a bowl.
- Once mixed, pour into your greased baking dish and sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of butter all over the blueberry apple mixture.
- To make the crumble mix together the flour, brown sugar, butter, and salt to create a wet sandy texture.
- Crumble evenly all over the blueberry apple mixture.
- Bake for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the fruit mix is bubbling up the sides.
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
