Gluten free berry crumble

I’m back in London after a great summer in Malta. It’s so cold here I’m freezing! It’s mid-August but feels like Winter. Seems like I flew my way from summer to winter! Can someone please let the UK know it’s just August and to send Summer back? Thank you. Seeing that I was away for two months I had a lot of grocery shopping to do. I have a shopping area close to my house with a lot of different shops and supermarkets and I usually like to pop in all of them to see what’s available. I popped into Poundland to check out their kitchen section and found the cutest small ceramic dish and a small 5 inch cake tin. I always get so excited about these things! They’re perfect for cooking for one person! Seeing that the weather is cold I decided to make a blueberry crumble. Also a perfect excuse to use my new ceramic dish! I’m already thinking about what type of cake I should make in my new cake tin. Any suggestions?


Blueberry Crumble (serves 1 or 2)


  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 zest of a lemon
  • 1/3 tablespoon rice flour or any other gluten free flour
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

For the crumble:

  • 2 tablespoons all purpose gluten free flour
  • 2 tablespoons gf rolled oats
  • 1/3 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1/3 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 10g butter


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Mix the blueberries, lemon zest, rice flour, caster sugar and lemon juice. Place the mixture in your baking dish. I  used a little 4-5 inch dish.
  3. Mix the all the crumble mixture together expect the butter.
  4. Break the butter into little pieces and rub in the crumble mix with your finger tips.
  5. Once the crumble is done place it on top of the blueberry mix in the baking dish. I also sprinkled with some flaxseed (optional).
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 15-20 minutes until crumble browns.


I served mine warm with some sweetened greek yoghurt. You may serve with lactose free ice-cream or whipped cream.
