Strawberry & Rhubarb Crumble

I have never eaten rhubarb (not that I remember). Its not like it was never in the house, my dad loves it. I was a very fussy child and I imagine I just refused to try it. It doesn't really look that appealing.
Well on the weekend we visited my brother and his amazing vegetable garden in the central west of NSW and I brought back (amongst many other things) some rhubarb.
I have been missing out!!! It was amazing.

In Nigella Kitchen she has a recipe for Strawberry Crumble which sounds really nice. But then while searching some rhubarb recipes I found this one for Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble from Smitten Kitchen. I have baked another recipe (Tiramisu Cake) from Smitten Kitchen and its now on my favourite cake to make list so I knew this would be worth a try. And the crumble has been inspired by Nigella and thus very similar.
Plus it was another reason to use my gorgeous new heart shaped dish :)

You must try this, it was amazing. The rhubarb just melted in you mouth, and the whole dish was so sweet with a lovely tang. The strawberries kept there consistency and were just delicious. And because the crumble has baking powder it was so thick yet light and yummy.
I served with natural yoghurt and that was just perfect.


  1. YUM, rhubarb! I always use it in pies, but now I think I'll give this recipe a go, because it looks so comforting :)

  2. Oh man that looks yummy!! Glad you came back from the dark side and tried rhubarb :) You tried an awesome combination. Rhubarb and vanilla or rhubarb and ginger is fab too. Great use for your fab pan too!

  3. I love rhubarb! Rhubarb grew in our back yard when I was a kid. My mom would make a dish similar to this one during the summer. Happy memories!

  4. I love the strawberry and rhubarb combo! That looks great-I am saving this for Winter :D

  5. We don't have rhubarb in Greece but we sure have strawberries and this crumble just made me want them desperately!

  6. I've made this before too and it's delicious!

  7. This is a very pretty dish! And I love the heart shape. Perfect for Valentine's Day, because it's a red heart. I have never eaten rhubarb in my life, the color is just so shocking! I need to try this.
