If you look at her photos, you will see there is a real clarity to the way she captures the food and ingredients.

Her recipe selection is wide and varied but they are all old fashioned favorites. It might have something to do with the fact that she’s a card-carrying member of the CWA.

That’s the Country Women’s Association for those of you that may not know. She always shares recipes that remind us of our childhood or something that our Nana used to make.

Blueberry Crumble Slice Ingredients:

Base

  • 1 cup of sugar,
  • 3 cups of plain flour (all-purpose for my American friends),
  • 1 cup of cold butter cut into small cubes (250 grams, 8 ounces or 2 sticks)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Fruit Filling 

  • 4 cups of blueberries (or fruit of your choice)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of cornflour
  • I heaped teaspoon cinnamon, reserved** Nicole says to make sure the butter really is cold.

Blueberry Crumble Slice Method

Method: Place the cubed butter and sugar into the bowl of a food processor and whizz to combine.  

You don’t want to mix it to a cream, you want to just barely combine it. Then add in the flour and baking powder and whizz again.

Dump in the egg, lemon zest and vanilla and process one more time.  The mixture should be soft and crumbly.

Divide into two portions. (If you don’t have a food processor, use a scone knife to cut the butter through the sugar and flour, or rub it together between your fingertips.)

Press one-half of the dough into the bottom of a baking paper-lined 28cm x 18cm (9 inch by 13 inch) slice tin. Don’t worry if it looks a little dry.

Now mix your sugar, lemon juice and cornflour together, and then mix thoroughly through your blueberries.  Tip these over the base and spread out evenly with a spoon.

Mix the cinnamon through the remaining dough and then crumble over the top of the fruit, making sure to get the mixture right to the edges.

Bake in a moderate (160-degree Celcius fan-forced or 180-degree oven – 350 degrees Fahrenheit ) for 45 minutes until golden brown.

Cool in the tin. If you cut your slice while it is still warm it will bleed a little, but that’s the price you pay for immediate gratification.
