Do you like blueberries? We sure do… in cereal, muffins, pies, crisps, scones, cakes, salads and eaten right off the blueberry bushes in our backyard! If you enjoy them like we do, then you will really enjoy this blueberry crumble!

Our two sons are grown men now, so these days my husband and I can easily enjoy meals made for two. My grocery bill is extremely thankful, too! Maybe you’re in the same boat, wanting to make a delicious dessert, but don’t need a HUGE dessert hanging around the house for days and days. Perhaps you only need to cook for one or two… then this yummy recipe is for YOU!

That’s where this easy blueberry crumble for two comes in handy! Two individual sized desserts in 12 ounce ramekins! You can also make this dessert for two in a small baking dish (8.5 x 5.5 inches), if you don’t have access to individual sized ramekins!

Prepare Your Baking Dishes For Filling

Cover a baking sheet (with rimmed edges) with aluminum foil. The foil is there to catch any blueberry filling that bakes OUT of the ramekins. Doing this one step really helps with cleanup (and you’ll be thankful you did this later!).

Spray each of the ramekins (or the baking dish) lightly with non-stick baking spray on the bottom and sides, and place on top of the aluminum foil. Preheat your oven to 375° F. and adjust an oven rack to a lower-middle position.

Prepare The Blueberries

Place the blueberries in a medium sized bowl. Add granulated sugar, cornstarch and a pinch of salt to the bowl, and gently stir to combine. If you think the blueberries you’re using are too tart, you can easily add a couple more teaspoons of sugar, if desired.

The blueberries will end up being coated with the sugar/cornstarch mixture, which is exactly what you want!

Make The Streusel Topping For The Blueberry Crumble

It’s very easy to make the streusel topping for the blueberry crumble. Place oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and very cold small chunks of butter in a medium bowl.

Using a pastry blender, two forks, or your fingers, combine these ingredients until the butter becomes about the size of a dime. You can also “pinch” the butter into the ingredients, so you are able to make the powdery ingredients adhere to the butter, forming clumps.

Top The Blueberries With Streusel Topping

Top each ramekin with the streusel topping, dividing it evenly between the two dishes. If it spills onto the foil, just scoop up what you can and dump it back on top!

Make sure to use all the topping! The streusel will be piled pretty high on top of the blueberries, but will decrease in size once baked.

Baking The Blueberry Crumble

Place the desserts in a preheated 375° F. oven, and bake for approximately 30 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet in the oven halfway thorough the baking time.

When done, the blueberry crumble should be golden brown on top, and be bubbling all around the edges. Remember that aluminum foil under the dishes? Told you that you would be thankful you added that little step! (When done, just throw away the foil… easy cleanup!)

Transfer the finished blueberry crumble to a wire rack, and let the dessert cool for about 15 minutes before serving. They are very hot!

Once the blueberry crumble has cooled a bit, it is ready to serve. Yes… I TOTALLY recommend serving this yummy dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! It adds extra calories, but sometimes ya just gotta go with it! YUMMO!
