Michigan Fruit Crumble

The first day here we stopped at the local fruit stand and got a nice selection of fruit. I had to make one of my fruit crumbles that have become a tradition on trips up here.

To start, cut up whatever fruit you have. I used rhubarb (cut in 1-2″ chunks), cherries (pitted and halved), strawberries (hulled and halved), and blueberries (whole). I usually cut up enough to fill a 9×12 baking dish half way. Sprinkle some sugar on top, more or less depending how sweet you want it. Then sprinkle a few tablespoons of cornstarch over the fruit as well and stir to mix it up.

For the topping, melt a stick of butter. In a separate bowl mix together a cup of brown sugar, a cup of flour and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Stir the dry mix into the wet. It should form little wet balls. I use my fingers to spread it around on top of the fruit.

Bake for one hour at 350 and you’ll have a warm, bubbly, delicious dessert.

A scoop of vanilla ice cream is the perfect addition. Mix it up and try whatever fruit you have available!

  1. Really enjoy your posts. Family is reared so do not do much cooking anymore; however when I read your blog I always think I will start again.
