Strawberry Crumble

Strawberry Crumble

The other day I was fancying a quick strawberry cake and I also wanted it somewhat more crunchy, with oatmeal. Inevitably, I came up with the idea of this strawberry crumble - a kind of super fast cake, with minimal effort and maximum result. The strawberry sauce formed at the base, like a kind of jelly, combines perfectly with the fragrant and crunchy crust, and if you also add a little vanilla ice cream - it's a hit!

You can adjust the amount of strawberries and crumble according to the size of the pan and your preferences - depending on whether you want a juicier or a crustier strawberry crumble. You can reduce the portions, of course, but we like it so much, so I'm always keen on making a very large cake.

Ingredients

Strawberries
1500 g
Sugar
5 tbsp
for the strawberry filling
Corn starch
2 tbsp
you can replace it with the same amount of flour
Lemon
1 piece
Butter
70 g
Sugar
70 g
for the crust
White flour
70 g
Quick oats
70 g
Vanilla Extract
1 tbsp

Step by step

1

Wash and hull the strawberries, then cut into halves or quarters. If the fruit is small, you can leave it whole.

2

Add the juice from a lemon, 5 tablespoons of sugar and the starch.

Mix everything well. By the way, the starch is what makes the strawberries  turn into jelly after baking, so don't ignore it.

3

Transfer this strawberry mixture to a deep baking pan, mine is made of glass and is 35x32cm.

4

In a different bowl, grate the cold butter through the large hole side of the grater.

5

Add in 70g of sugar, flour, oatmeal and a little vanilla essence.

6

Mix this dough with your hands to form some wet crumbly chunks.

7

Spread it evenly over the strawberries in the pan.

Place the pan in the preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 45-50 minutes.

8

After the oven, I like to let this strawberry crumble calm down a bit and let the flavors blend - about 2-3 hours.

9

Then serve as such or with a little vanilla ice cream next to it, it will be the perfect match for the strawberry sauce/jelly.

We like it just as much cold, from the fridge, the next day, if there is any left!

Enjoy!
