  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ready-made shortcrust pastry (we usually buy a 400 g package in the store)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons of freshly grated lemon peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 – 7 cups of fresh blueberries (we can also use frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon whipping cream (33%)
  • 1 spoonful of coarse sugar for decoration


  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and line the cake tin with baking paper.
  • Roll out the fragile dough (unless you buy it already rolled out) and cut it according to the size of the mold, adding 1-2 cm more so that the dough can be nicely pressed inside.
  • In the meantime, store the rest of the dough in the refrigerator to chill.
  • Once we have lined the mold with baking paper, carefully put the dough into the mold and press it inside the mold. We cut off what sticks out over its edge.
  • Put the mold with the dough in the fridge to cool, and in the meantime prepare the filling.
  • Put sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, allspice, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Mix and add blueberries.
  • We mix carefully so that all the flavors combine with the blueberries, and we transfer the finished filling to the prepared dough in the mold.
  • Thoroughly smooth and roll out a sheet from the rest of the dough, from which we cut strips approx. 1 – 1.5 cm wide.
  • We pile on the filling so that we form a regular grid.
  • Melt the butter and use a rolling pin to spread only the filling between the individual parts of the grid.
  • Beat the eggs with the cream and brush the resulting mixture over the dough/grid for a change.
  • Finally, sprinkle the grate with a spoonful of coarse sugar.
  • Place the cake prepared in this way in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to cool down. If we are in a hurry, we can put it in the freezer to cool for about 5-7 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees. Take the cake out of the fridge/freezer and immediately put it in the preheated oven.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 150 degrees and bake for another 35 to 45 minutes.
  • The crust must be beautifully golden and the blueberry juice will be bubbling wildly. If the crust starts to brown, cover the top of the pie with foil and bake until the time is up.
  • Then take the finished cake out of the oven and let it rest for 3 hours to cool. Only then cut and serve.

Blueberry pie with crumble

Fragile, delicate and very tasty, that’s exactly what this delicious dessert is, which will make you lick your ears. Great dough goes hand in hand with your favorite fruit, and the butter that is part of the topping is second to that.



On a small scale:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup semi-coarse flour
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 6 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter

Blueberry filling:

  • 3 and 1/2 cups fresh blueberries (we can also use frozen)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons of fresh, chemically untreated lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  • Let’s start by preparing the crumbs. Put the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl and mix. Add the melted butter and start mixing with a rubber spatula.
  • We continue until larger pieces start to form that hold together. Put the finished crumb in the fridge to cool down.
  • In the meantime, we will prepare the blueberry filling. Rinse the blueberries and let them drain on a sieve.
  • Pour the drained fruit into a large bowl, sprinkle with sugar, cornstarch, salt and sprinkle with lemon juice. We also let the filling cool down in the fridge for the crumb.
  • According to the recipe, we prepare the short dough, put it in a mold lined with baking paper and let it cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • As soon as we remove the dough, transfer the blueberry filling to it, spread it out and sprinkle it with breadcrumbs.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for approx. 60 minutes, so that the surface of the cake is golden brown and the juice from the fruit bubbles on the edge.
  • When the cake starts to brown quickly, which usually happens after about 40 minutes, cover it with a piece of aluminum foil.
  • Once it’s done, take the mold out of the oven and let it stand for 15 minutes. Then transfer it to a kitchen rack with baking paper and wait for the cake to cool completely. Only then do we cut it and serve it.

Tip: It’s great to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the cake and a good portion of whipped cream.
