Blueberry Crumble

I have to say that my friend over at Dishing Up Delights does a fantastic job on all of her recipes, but the ones that catch my eyes are her desserts. As you can probably tell from my own postings, that I am not that big into desserts, however I should be as my kids favor desserts over things like bbq pork, carne asada, and shrimp tacos.  There are occasions however, especially during an extended weekend, where I do think of making desserts for them such as cinnamon pies, and homemade doughnuts, and this weekend was no exception.

Blueberry Crumble Recipe

Blueberries are in season right now, and they are in abundance. When I saw them at the store, I immediately thought of making a pie, but I love using my ramekins, so I immediately though of a quick and easy blueberry crumble. You know, the delicious crumble of buttery oats? Yes, that kind, and the kind that kept my daughter wanting more. This is an easy recipe, and one that my four year old daughter, I should say three year old, going on four, was able to help me with through the entire process. Let’s get started.


  • 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 stick of salted butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup of Quaker oats
  • 3 cups of fresh blueberries, washed and dried
  • Additional 2 tbsp of butter

Begin by adding the flour, sugar, and cinnamon to a large bowl. Toss in the butter, and begin mixing it into the flour with a fork. You want to keep forking the mixture until you see it build a nice crumble. Toss in your oats.

Take 1/2 of this mixture and set it aside. Take your blueberries and add them to the large bowl of oats and flour mix, and toss well.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. As the oven preheats, butter the insides of the ramekins, I used 8 of them.

Add the blueberry mixture about 3/4 of the way to the top to each ramekin. Top each ramekin with the remaining crumble that you set aside. Bake in the oven for about 40-45 minutes until you have a great golden brown top.

Let this sit for about 10 minutes before eating. You can serve this alone, or place a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Happy Fourth!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
