I enjoy baking and will often bring some baked goodies to events and gatherings. My Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp recipe is always a hit at potlucks and I’m often asked for the recipe.
This dessert is a perfect combination of sweet strawberries and tart rhubarb in between crunchy layers. It’s a simpler alternative to the classic strawberry rhubarb pie (or our alternative: cinnamon apple rhubarb pie!).
With strawberries and rhubarb just coming into season, it’s the perfect time for baking this no-fuss dessert. Rhubarb is easy to grow but can take up a lot of space so consider this when planting it in your garden.
You can easily substitute the rhubarb and strawberries for other seasonal fruit, such as apples, peaches, plums or cherries. This is just a great go-to and tasty dessert recipe for all year round!
We actually like to chop up some of the fresh rhubarb and strawberries when they’re in season. We then simply pop them into the freezer to use when we’re craving some tart rhubarb crumble goodness!
And if you have any leftover rhubarb, you have to make this rhubarb with caramel sauce. Doesn’t it sound amazing?
Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Recipe
Crust and Crumble:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup brown sugar packed
- ¾ cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinamon
- ½ cup melted butter
- 2 cups diced rhubarb
- 2 cups diced strawberries
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Preheat oven at 350°F (175°C).
