Blueberry Crumble

This super-easy blueberry crumble features sweet berries with a brown sugar, almond and oat topping that only gets better with the cool creaminess of vanilla ice cream. Try it with other fruit, such as peaches, for a different variety. —Elizabeth Tomlinson, Morgantown, West Virginia

    I also started in microwave but finished in the oven. I prefer my oven for browning. Quick dessert to finish a meal.

    Another simple and very tasty recipe. I used chopped pecans instead of almonds. I microwaved as in first step them baked it in the oven after adding topping.

    This dessert is one I'll make again. It was a huge hit and a great way to use up the blueberries. I love that it is done in the microwave so I don't have to heat up the house with the oven. I strongly recommend this recipe to others!

    Very simple to make and delicious. I used whipped topping instead of ice-cream.
