Alright, I have made this one a few times recently, and since I have received good feedback on it, I figured I would go ahead and share it with you. This is one of those “warm-the-heart-and-home” kind of desserts, and if you like desserts like peach cobbler and cherry pie, then you’ll love this!
I remember eating it as a kid. To me it was one of those desserts we could only have from time to time, you know for those “special occasions”. After we moved to Louisiana and Mom made it again I remember being so excited. It flashes me back to Oklahoma, and what could be better than that???
It’s warm, sweet, tangy, crunchy, and juicy. It’s warm wonderfulness. Is your mouth watering yet?
Oh, and I forgot the best part—it’s really really really easy to make!
2 cups blueberries
2 TBLSP lemon juice
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/3 cup softened butter
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375*. Arrange blueberries in an ungreased 8×8 pan. Sprinkle with lemon juice. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Cover the blueberries. Bake for 20 minutes.
- microwave the butter for about 20 seconds for perfect mixing texture
- (personal preference) mix in the butter last, it allows the mixture to be at that perfect crumbly state
- glass pan is the best because you can see the texture of the blueberry mixture
- serve while warm
- add vanilla ice cream or cool whip
- don’t get as big of a portion as you would pie, this is rich!
- (personal preference) Go in the Summer during blueberry season and pick a bucket full of blueberries and freeze them in quart size bags. If you freeze them, don’t let them thaw before you use them
Alright, now step away from the computer and into your kitchen. I guarantee you’ll love this one, and it’s a great way to get your kids to eat fruit! And it’s great for any season. Okay, I’m done, now go bake!
(I apologize for not getting a picture before it was almost gone, but this was the best I could do. This is also after it has been refrigerated)
