Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble

With spring finally here in New York, I am super excited for the season’s produce. This crumble from Smitten Kitchen features one of the stars of late spring: rhubarb. Although I’m not much of a baker, crumbles are in my dessert recipe repertoire. This easy recipe by Smitten Kitchen is one of my favorites.


Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble

Yields 6 to 8 servings.

For the topping

  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Demerara or turbinado sugar
  • Zest of one lemon
  • ¼ pound unsalted butter, melted

For the filling

  • 1 ½ cups rhubarb, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 quart strawberries plus a few extras, hulled, quartered
  • Juice of one lemon
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients for the topping. Mix until small and large clumps form. Refrigerate until needed.

Toss rhubarb, strawberries, lemon juice, sugar, cornstarch and a pinch of salt in a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate or oven Pyrex dish.

Remove the topping from the refrigerator and cover the fruit with the topping. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the pie plate on the sheet.  Bake until the topping is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling, about 40 to 50 minutes.
