Perfect Dessert for Mother's Day Brunch-Mother's Day Hop


Blueberry, Orange, and Plum Crumble

That in itself just tickles my taste-buds saying typing it. I wish I could say this is my recipe.. but its not, its a fav of mine that I found in a great cookbook called:!Cocina! by Leland Atkinson

I would dare say I don't think a Mother could resist this desert! Its so refreshing! 

For The Filling:

  • Ripe Plums, pitted and diced
  • 6 Tbsp of Sugar
  • 2 tsp of Cornstarch
  • 4 tsp of Ground Canela or 2 tsp of Ground Cinnamon
  • 4 Oranges, peeled and cut into sections (**Zest your oranges before peeling for Topping)
  • 2 Cups of Fresh Blueberries

For The Topping:

  • 1 Cup Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Cup of packed Brown  Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of Ground Canela or 1 &1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup of Hazelnuts, toasted, skinned and chopped
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 6 Tbsp of Cold Butter
  • Minced zest of 1/2 Orange

For the filling, put the plums in a medium bow, add 3 tablespoons of the sugar and toss to coat the plums. Put the mixture in a sieve and drain for 30 mins to 1 hour. Stir the cornstarch and Canela(southwestern cuizine) or cinnamon into the remaining 5 tablespoons of sugar. and add it to the plums, oranges and blueberries and toss to coat it. Then pour the filling into a 12 inch backing dish. 


For the topping, put all dry ingredients except the orange zest into a large mixing bowl and stir well. Cut the chilled butter into 1-inch cubes  and toss into the dry ingredients along with the orange zest. using either a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the dry ingredients until peanut-sized pieces are formed. The mixture will be loose and fairly dry. The crumble topping may be made in advance, covered, and refrigerated up to 5 days.


To Bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees,/ Sprinkle crumble topping over the filling and bake the crumble for 30 to 40 minutes. or until the topping is brown and fruit bubbles. Let it cool slightly before serving.

A Suggestion, well really a Must:

Serve with Premium Vanilla Ice Cream (its heavenly) 


So Grab your Apron and give Mom a special treat this Mother's Day! Wouldn't be nice if you treated her to dessert -don't let her wear her apron on her One day of the year.
