There are just a few official summer days left, so I am suggesting to celebrate this with this luscious Blueberry Lavender Crumble.
Indeed, are you done with summer food? Have you already started baking apple pies? Is your kitchen full of these cosy fall flavors like cinnamon, apples, pears, pumpkins, and lavender? Well, lavender is the all seasonal produce, right?:)
Yeeees, I am quite ready, and I look forward to my autumn kitchen adventures. I haven’t jumped into it yet because I still have a few lovely summer recipes to share, but I am keeping a list where I add some fall ideas I’d like to try. Unfortunately, I need to pick them very carefully – we don’t have much time with the Christmas theme coming at the end of November.
But I’m highly pleased with all the food I’ve made, shared, and importantly, eaten during this summer.
I’ve made a plenty of delicious salads like this Quinoa Peach Lavender Salad.
Also, I was lucky to have tried some scrumptious savory-sweet pasta options like this Strawberry Basil Ricotta Pasta.
I did enjoy a lot of crostini and bruschetta, and trust me, I have shown only a little part of it like this fancy Blackberry Lavender Goat Cheese Crostini.
I’ve introduced halva to some of your, and in at the same time chilled out with this Halva Iced Coffee.
And sure I’ve enjoyed ice cream such as this sumptuous Dulce De Leche Bailey’s Ice Cream.
But you know what? I’ve turned my oven on only a couple of times this summer – it was way too hot!
Although I was planning on baking a few fruit galettes and pies, I ended up making only this Blueberry Lavender Crumble. But I don’t mind. Luscious and berrylicious, this Blueberry Lavender Crumble is an epitome of a simple yet aromatic and delightful summer dessert. Besides, I consider crumbles to be a better option among the baked desserts because of not using a lot of refined sugars, flour, and butter.
Have you baked many delicious pies this summer? Are you excited about fall cooking?
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 1 tablespoon fresh or freshly dried (soft and nice) lavender
- 4 tablespoons butter + 1/2 tablespoon for greasing
- 3 tablespoons golden sugar + 1 for the blueberries (optional)
- 1/3 cup steel-cut oats
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour or a little more as required
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees C.(340 degrees F). Grease a 6 inch (or a little larger) baking dish with 1/2 tablespoon butter.
- On a cutting board, chop the butter with a knife then add the sugar, oats, 1/2 tablespoon of lavender, and flour and stir with your fingers until the mixture remains crumbs. If it's too dry, add a tablespoon butter more. If it's a little too buttery/wet to your taste, add a little more flour or oats.
- Mix the blueberries with the remaining lavender and if desired, with 1 tablespoon of sugar and place in the dish. Scatter the crumbs over the blueberries and place in the oven for about 30-35 minutes or until lightly golden and crispy.
- Remove and let cool a little before serving.
