Strawberry crumble

Strawberry crumble / Crumble de morango

This cold weather makes me crave hearty, comforting food, both savory and sweet. On the savory side soups get all my attention, but when it comes to sweet recipes crumbles are THE winter dessert to me – I could easily have one a day. :)

This delicious crumble comes from Valentina’s fabulous blog – and just so you know it, I’m just getting started on strawberry recipes around here. :)

Strawberry crumble

185g strawberries, hulled and halved lengthwise
1 tablespoon caster sugar
½ tablespoon lemon juice – I used lime
3 ½ tablespoons (49g) cold unsalted butter, chopped
½ cup + 1 tablespoon (80g) all purpose flour
3 ½ tablespoons (42g) caster sugar
pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
Butter two 1-cup capacity ovenproof bowls and divide the strawberries among them. Sprinkle each with ½ tablespoon sugar and drizzle with the lemon juice.
Place the butter, flour, sugar and salt in a small bowl and, using your fingertips, rub them together until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle over the strawberries, place the bowls on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden.
Serve warm with cream or yogurt.

Serves 2

You know how it is said that as we age our tastes change right? Well, of late I seem to want to eat sweet things but I mostly want to blame you :) because you make every dessert so tempting!

Our strawberries are all gone around here, and we've moved on to cherries! But I think they would work with this recipe, too!

I can't wait for cooler weather! Summer is coming to an end over here so I'm hoping the temperature drops a bit soon! Of course the heat never stops me from baking...especially something as gorgeous as this! Love the brilliant red seeping out from under the crumble :)

Michelle, thank you, darling!

Susan, thank you!

Joey, I'm not a summer creature, unlike 90% of the Brazilians... :)
Like you, I can bake under any temperature - it's an addiction! :)
