Brown Bread Blueberry Crumble

This is something I made aaages ago one night when we felt like something sweet, had some bread that needed using as was too good to waste by freezing, and didn't have much else in the house :D

The Recipe

450g (1 large packet) frozen blueberries
2 tblspn caster sugar
3-4 tblspn water
1c fresh brown bread crumbs
1/2c brown sugar (preferably dark)
1/4c plain flour
about 75g butter or margarine (I just used 2 large tablespoon-scoops)

Put the blueberries, sugar and water in a pot and simmer for I think 12? minutes. Meanwhile, put all the other ingredients together in a bowl and rub the butter into the dry ingredients using only your fingertips until crumbs form.

Transfer the blueberries to an oven-proof dish. Top with the crumbs and bake at 180C (350F) for 10-15 mins until the topping is crisp and browned.

Serve hot or cold with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

The Results

This was an interesting mix of savoury and sweet. It was definitely a dessert, but the brown bread crumbs added an interesting savoury undertone. I'd highly recommend this for people like my husband who aren't too fond of over-sweet dishes.
