Hello fabulous friends! Gloria here from Simply Gloria and I’m so excited to be back and especially during this fun, fun week of such creative ideas with the Summer In Jars series! I’m sharing an easy recipe that is baked in a jar!
Jars of all sizes are my favorite to use for many things besides preserving food in the fall. There’s just something about sipping on a tasty beverage or having a creamy milkshake in a jar. You could also use little jars to pack individual servings of a picnic salad.
But did you know you could bake with small canning jars?
These little jars of warm Blueberry Crumble are made with the simplicity of tart blueberries and sweet oatmeal buttery crumble.
That alone is just decadent. But the best part about making this simple recipe, is that you get to bake it all right into the serving dish itself!
You may just want to save some blueberries off to the side while you’re making this baked crumble recipe… so you can make Claire’s amazing Easy Overnight Blueberry French Toast Casserole!
Now, if you don’t have short wide mouth jars, other 8-ounce jars will work just fine with these little blueberry crumbles in a jar. You may also use ramekins in place of jars. Either way, you are going to LOVE this insanely delicious dessert!
- 3 cups fresh or thawed blueberries
- 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 3 tablespoon light brown sugar
- juice from half a lemon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons old-fashioned whole rolled oats (not instant or quick cook)
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons cold butter (salted or unsalted is okay to use)
- Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- Place 4, 8-ounce wide mouth jars (or ramekins) on the baking sheet and set aside.
- Combine blueberries, cornstarch, brown sugar, lemon juice and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl. Divide the blueberry mixture into each small jar.
- To make the crumble topping, combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, oats, flour and cold butter in a medium mixing bowl.
- Use both hands to break and mix in the cold butter until crumbly (or you could pulse in a food processor.)
- Divide the buttery oat mixture on top of each blueberry filled jar.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes.
- Allow to cool at room temperature or until the glass jars has cooled to the touch.
- Serving with ice cream or whipped cream is even more decadent!
- Makes 4 servings.
- Delicious served warm or cold.
Enjoy, my ALC friends and I’ll see you back here next month!! xo
