strawberry rhubarb crisp


yay for rhubarb season! yay for home grown rhubarb!

once i have my own garden & don't have to steal all my parents herbs, fruits & veggies i am gonna plant SO much rhubarb. i absolutely love baking with it. i am pretty sure it is a fairly easy plant to harvest, i hope. who knows though, i was told the same about succulents & my precious plants are almost ALL dead. i have managed to keep one alive for now, go aloe! maybe my green thumb is just something that cannot be fixed, especially if you can't even keep a succulent alive.

anyways, back to the fresh rhubarb i harvested from the garden last week. finally i can make the strawberry rhubarb crumble i have been planning on making for weeks now in these cute little oval cocottes with brass knobs. yes BRASS! these might just be my new favourite kitchen item. i think everything should come in a brass or copper finish, what about you? the crumble itself is both sweet + tart thanks to that sour rhubarb & the oat crumble topping is thick + buttery. be very very generous when you are topping this crumble, it'll cook down more then you think, so load it up!


for the crumble

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole oats
  • 1 cup raw sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold & cubed

for the filling

  • 3 cups chopped fresh rhubarb
  • 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


  • in a large mixing bowl add the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon & vanilla. toss until evenly combined.
  • add the cubed butter & using your hands work into pea sized crumbs. set aside.
  • in a separate mixing bowl mix the rhubarb, strawberries, corn starch, raw sugar, cinnamon, vanilla & lemon juice.
  • pour into one large baking dish or four mini cocottes.
  • top generously with oat mixture.
  • bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until the fruit is bubbly & the topping is golden brown.
