Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble – the dessert that inspired my Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Cake!
I love recipes that remind me of a certain time and place in life. This Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble recipe does just that. Every time I make it, it reminds me of summer vacations at Ryan’s parent’s house. I think his dad has made us this crumble every summer we visit. It’s been one of my favorite desserts since joining the Rich family. A tradition of summer!
This crumble recipe is also the dessert that inspired my Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Cake I made last year.
Remember that cake? It’s such a delicious cake! The filling and crumble are taken from this crumble recipe. I then paired the filling and crumble with a light and fluffy white cake and a whipped vanilla buttercream. It’s truly a beautiful combination of flavors and textures.
But as delicious as the cake is, I just felt like you needed to experience the real deal.
The Most Delicious Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble
The original recipe for this crumble comes from Bon Appetit. We’ve omitted the hazelnuts and added more oats to our recipe. I also use vanilla bean paste instead of vanilla beans. The recipe also recommends serving the crumble with ice cream, but the Rich’s like using homemade whipped cream instead.
However, when I tried this buttermilk whipped cream that Heather from Orson Gygi made a few weeks ago, I knew it would be the perfect pairing to this crumble. I love the tangy, tart flavor it adds to the sweet crumble. The flavors balance so well together.
I’m excited for you to try this recipe. It’s easy, delicious and the perfect summer dessert!
