Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble
Birthdays around our house are usually punctuated with something chocolate. This year, for my husband's birthday, found us with an abundance of strawberries and rhubarb, and an absence of chocolate powder in our pantry. The lack of chocolate is not intentional (believe me!), but it was a fun challenge to come up with a different kind of dessert for our family of 3 celebration.
The result? A scrumptious, and super easy, strawberry and rhubarb crumble that even my toddler enjoyed, and I, his mother, could feel guilt free as he jammed fist-fulls of the cobbler into his mouth.
2 pounds of Strawberries (about 3-4 baskets)
1 pound rhubarb (about 5 stocks)
1 cup sugar or honey
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter (one stick)
Dash of Nutmeg
Dash of Cinnamon
Slice the strawberries four ways and set aside. Chop the rhubarb into 1/2 inch chunks and set aside. Pour the strawberries and rhubarb together in a bowl and mix with the sugar. Spread the fruit mixture into a 9 inch pan or dish. Let sit while you prepare the crumble. In a medium-sized bowl mix together all the dry ingredients for the crumble. Melt the butter and pour over the dry crumble ingredients. With your hands sprinkle the crumble on top of the fruit mixture. Cook at 375 degree Fahrenheit for 20-30 minutes, or until the crumble has started to brown. Serve hot or cold.
