With loads and loads of fresh blueberries from our little adventure yesterday, I had to find a few new recipes to try! :-) Several of you were asking after seeing It on my stories yesterday so here’s the first recipe I found!
Blueberry Crumb Bars
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Cooling Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into cubes
1 Tbsp (9g) cornstarch
1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp (22ml) lemon juice
4 cups (538g) fresh blueberries, at room temperature
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish (also line with parchment and butter parchment if you'd like to lift them out easier), set aside.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together egg and vanilla until combine.
Add egg mixture and cold butter cubes to flour mixture and using a fork or a pastry cutter, cut mixture together until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Press 1/2 of the mixture evenly into prepared baking dish.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar and cornstarch, stir in lemon juice.
Add blueberries then toss mixture to evenly coat, pour and spread coated blueberries evenly over crust in baking dish.
Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over berry layer.
Bake in preheated oven about 38 - 42 minutes until top is golden brown.
Cool and enjoy! ;-)
