  • 2 cups fresh blueberries divided
  • cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 apple peeled and diced


  • ½ cup butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar in the raw


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and butter a pie plate.
  • Add 1 cup of blueberries, ⅓ cup sugar, lemon juice, and salt to a saucepan and cook over medium heat until blueberries burst and mixture is thickened.
  • Add remaining 1 cup of blueberries, apple, and lemon zest. Stir to combine. Spread into the pie plate.
  • Prepare Topping: Melt the butter in a small saucepan and keep cooking it, swirling the pan occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until it turns golden. Pour into a bowl. Stir ¾ cup of sugar into the butter, then the eggs, then the flour and cinnamon.
  • Pour over the fruit and sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden and crusty, and the juices ooze from around the edges.
  • Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or thick vanilla yogurt.


*Instead of the blueberry filling you can substitute - 8 or so plums, thickly sliced, or apricots, or 3 peaches, or 3 tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced + 2 Tbsp. sugar (or to taste, according to the sweetness of the fruit)
