Blueberry Crumble is a delight, particularly in summer when the berries are fresh from the field. Serve each of your guests a personal blueberry crumble for a fun dessert.

As I mentioned last week, FishChick9 has been baking up a storm, preparing for a televised kids’ baking competition that we hope she will be accepted to. They called last week and asked for more pictures of her baked goods, so she got to work baking all kinds of different things to show off her mad skilz: crepes, apple pie, Oslo Kringle, etc. 

One night after dinner she presented each of us with a personal blueberry crumble, a dessert that we enjoy throughout the summer months. These were delicious, full of plump, juicy berries tinged in ginger and topped with a crunchy crumble topping.

I love fresh fruit crumbles because they’re easy to assemble and feature in-season fruit. Use berries or stone fruit in the summer; apples or pears in the fall. You can make them in advance and store them in the freezer; just bake when you’re ready to serve.

When you make a blueberry crumble in individual ramekins, the dessert not only looks way prettier, but it feels just extra special. You also have one less dish to wash!

Blueberry Crumble comes together so quickly and easily. If you haven’t made one yet, make this the week to do it! And don’t worry if you don’t have fresh berries. We use frozen berries as well, depending on what’s on sale.

Tools I use to make it easy:

A word from my mini-me: she prefers to make the crumble by hand. She says she can get just the perfect texture. She is not quite as lazy as her mama, who prefers the food processor by far. 😉

    If you need a taste tester in STL, I would be more than happier to offer my assistance.

    Good luck, Fishchick9!!! Your baked goods look fantastic. 🙂

    At what age did you start letting your children use various kitchen utensils – stove top, oven, knives, blender, mixer, etc.—without adult supervision?

    • It really depends on the kid, their knowledge and interest. My daughter has been pretty independent since about 8, but we supervised her when she was younger. She’s very motivated in the kitchen whereas some of her older brothers are only slowly becoming interested.

    Hi Jessica
    I want to take this to a friend and I don’t have enough individual dishes. what size dish would you recommend would hold the whole recipe? 8×8?

    • Yes, that should be fine. Adjust the baking time. You want the filling to be thick and bubbly.
