My Last Post Before The Trip: Blueberry Crumble

17 Aug

Caroline makes a killer Crumble!

On Sunday Caroline and are are getting up in the very wee hours of the morning and boarding a plane for our whirlwind trip to Washington DC.

This will be my last post until after we return from that trip.

Given the upcoming trip, I thought I’d feature Caroline in the kitchen for today’s post. When she was being interviewed earlier this week, the reporter asked her what else she likes to make in the kitchen. She talked about making scrambled eggs for her sisters, and then she said, “I make Crumble.”

I started a list in the inside of this book called “So Far So Good” since the cookbook has so many recipes and I wanted to keep track of the ones I’ve tried out that were “keepers.”

And she does. She makes a really good Crumble topping which we’ve used to make both Blueberry Crumble and Peach Crumble this summer. The Crumble topping requires patience and attention to detail and I work too quickly to make mine come out as well as hers does.

The recipe for Blueberry Crumble came out of The Maine Wild Blueberry Cookbook, and so far in that cookbook everything I have tried has been delicious, but we’ve found the recipe for Blueberry Crumble to be fast, easy, delicious and adaptable to more than just blueberries.

Here’s the recipe for you. Enjoy it, and be thinking of us this weekend as we take our trip of a lifetime!

BLUEBERRY CRUMBLE

Anything with this crumble topping is so delicious!

INGREDIENTS

1/3 cup sugar

some extra sugar for sprinkling

5 Tablespoons Butter

Juice of one lemon (I sprinkled lemon juice from a bottle)

2/3 cup of flour

2 pints of blueberries

DIRECTIONS

Put washed berries in small shallow baking dish.

Sprinkle with lemon juice and sugar

In a separate bowl blend in butter, flour and 1/3 cup sugar

Sprinkle topping over berries.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream or both!

Hot out of the oven!

Yum!

An alternative use for the crumble topping: Peach crumble. I had less peaches so I used a smaller dish but the same amount of topping.
