Blueberry Crumble Recipe

This super-easy dessert features sweet blueberries with a brown sugar, almond and oat crumbly 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,” suggests Elizabeth Tomlinson of Morgantown, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons chopped almonds
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • Vanilla ice cream


  • 1. In a greased 9-in. microwave-safe pie plate, combine the blueberries, sugar and cornstarch. Cover and microwave on high for 7-8 minutes or until thickened, stirring twice.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, almonds and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over blueberry mixture.
  • 3. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2-3 minutes or until butter is melted. Serve with ice cream. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

"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!"
