Blueberry Crumble

Our Blueberry Crumble is an easy dessert that’s perfect for any occasion. It’s made with fresh blueberries, sweetened with sugar, has a pinch of cinnamon, and is topped with a crunchy crumble topping. Enjoy as-is or with a scoop of vanilla ice!

This blueberry crisp is my favorite crisp recipe! Yes, I’m using the words “crisp” and “crumble” interchangeably. And, yes, I know they have a couple of subtle differences, but as long as it tastes good I’m not fussing too much over the small things.

Now, back to this blueberry crumble. I hope you’ll love it as much as I do. It’s full of plump blueberries, topped with a scaled down version of my crumble topping, and baked until bubbly and golden brown.

One of my favorite parts? It’s a smaller version, so you don’t need a big pan to bake it. There’s just enough for a small gathering or for leftover dessert for 3-4 days.

Storage:

Refrigerator: Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

Freezer: Prepare the crisp just up to the point of baking. Cover with plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil, and freeze for up to 2 months. When ready to bake, remove the cover, and bake for an extra 20-30 minutes.

Can I use frozen blueberries?

Yes, but make sure to thaw and drain them first. You might need to add more cornstarch to compensate for the excess liquid released by frozen berries.
