Why This Recipe Works

  • Delcious and heart warming, the strawberry filling is sweet and syrupy
  • Simple recipe, no fancy equipment needed
  • Loaded with the goodness of fruit

Ingredients you will need

To make my strawberry crumble recipe you will need strawberries, vanilla extract or essence, maple syrup, and cornflour (corn starch). For the crumble topping, you need rolled oats, butter, sugar, flour, desiccated coconut, and white chocolate chips.

The white chocolate chips and coconut is a little secret that was passed down to me by my mum, she makes the best rhubarb crumble with this topping and it's just as good with strawberries.

How to Make a Strawberry Crumble

Below are illustrated step-by-step instructions to make my Strawberry Crumble Recipe, if you prefer just the written instructions then head straight to the printable recipe card below.

Prep: Pre-heat your oven to 160 degrees celsius.

Step one: Top the strawberries and cut large strawberries into small pieces. Place the even-sized strawberries in a pie or baking dish.

Step four: Top the strawberries with the crumb topping. Bake for 35-40 minutes at 160 degrees, try and place your strawberry crumble in the lower part of the oven, as the chocolate drops can cook quicker than the rest of the crumble, some times I loosely pop a piece of tin foil over the top of the crumble to stop it getting too browned.

Step five: Once the crumble top is golden brown Remove from oven, allow to sit for 5mins before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Enjoy!
