How to Make This Strawberry Crumble Recipe?
- 1-5 cups of fresh strawberries (depending on the size of your dish)
- 1/2 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of oats
- A pinch of salt
- A saucepan
- A small pan for making crumb topping (1 to 1-1/2 cups).
- A fork
- A small plate or pie dish (approx 10 450 millimeters)
- A fork and a knife to help you cut the strawberries into pieces
- A baking sheet and rolling pin to prepare the crumb topping ersatz (optional).
- A blender (optional)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Wash strawberries and remove the green leaves. Prepare a baking sheet with baking paper or grease with some butter.
Start by cutting your strawberries into smaller pieces and removing their stem. Place into a bowl, add cinnamon and sugar to taste while gently mixing until they are well coated.
Prepare your crumb topping mix: in a small pan over medium heat, add flour, oats, sugar, and salt. Mix well and keep stirring until a browning effect is achieved. Remove from heat as soon as it changes color.
Once the crumbs are made, pour them onto a plate or into a pie dish while they are still hot so that the moisture can evaporate overnight.
Take a baking sheet or any other surface on which you will be rolling out your crumble topping. Spread out your crumbs on the baking sheet using your rolling pin. Smooth it as much as you can so that there are no lumps!
Take half the prepared crumbs and sprinkle them over your strawberries while gently mixing until they are well coated.
Place the rest of the crumbs over the top and gently press down to ensure they are well covered. Spread out a bit. Sprinkle pieces of strawberry over them and gently turn the strawberries to cover with crumbs. Smooth any lumps that may be on top.
Finally, place into the oven for about 30 minutes or until crispy and golden brown. Let cool completely before serving.
- You can use the other half of the crumble topping to decorate your dish – pour it over your strawberries before cooking.
- If you do not have a saucepan, prepare a minor crumble topping in a frying pan over medium heat. The same goes for the oven: if you do not have one, another baking sheet will do as well, and you can use less baking time.
- If you don’t have a blender or food processor, you can also use a potato ricer to prepare the crumbs. Just be extra careful when handling the crumbs, so they don’t crumble and fly everywhere (in my experience, I often burn my hands). They get better after a while.
- It is okay if you don’t have time to make a crumble topping. Spread a layer of crumbs on each slice of toast before adding the strawberries, and serve as you would with any crumble topping.

How do I make my crumble topping crisp?
The topping will come out the way you like it the most. If you want your topping to be crispier, bake it for longer in a higher heat.
If your crumble topping is softer, bake it for a shorter time in lower heat. If you want more crumble topping, just double the ingredients of your first recipe and bake it on a larger surface to ensure it is spread out well.
What does cornstarch do in a crumble?
Cornstarch makes the topping crumbs stick together, making it much more difficult to break them apart. You cannot make a mistake, as the crumble-topped strawberries would turn out all right even if you do not have cornstarch.
Is plain or self-raising flour better for crumbling?
It is better to use self-raising flour, as it is more elastic. At the same time, it gives you a lighter texture compared to whole meal flour.
Hence, if you wish for a soft texture but not so much that your strawberries will be too mushy, choosing a self-raising flour with less gluten and bran would be best.
What is the difference between a crisp and a crumble?
Crisp and a crumble are two different things. A crisp may have a topping that is flakey and crumbly, which means it has butter and sugar in it.
The difference between the two is the texture of their toppings. Crumble toppings are typically soft, whereas crisp toppings can be flakey or crumbly, depending on what you want them to be.
How To Store Freeze it?
You can store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and keep it at room temperature for the same period. If like me, you do not have enough room in your refrigerator and want to keep your strawberries fresh for more than three days, then you should freeze them. You can freeze them in a plastic bag or container if they are new and not rotten.
The Strawberry Crumble recipe is a great way to use fresh strawberries for breakfast or snacks. Loaded with vitamins and minerals and prepared in healthy, nutritious ingredients, it is ideal for those on a diet or generally looking to be more beneficial.
