Rhubarb Strawberry Crumble with a Twist

It’s part two of my rhubarb month-long blogging event and today is a dessert of rhubarb strawberry crumble with a twist! I’ve eaten a lot of rhubarb in my life and have had it a few different ways. A staple summer cake for me is the Alberta rhubarb cake, which my mom makes for me every year. Once I even made it myself too, but it’s much better when mom makes it! I’ve also used rhubarb in my easy Greek yogurt rhubarb muffins, which are great for breakfast or an on the go snack. Last week on the blog we had a rhubarb shrub (you may be familiar with my new addiction to making shrubs if you also read the kiwi shrub I recently made) and next week will be a rhubarb fig ginger relish.

I’ve had a lot of rhubarb and strawberry crumble over the years as well, but this crumble has a bit of an interesting twist. I was looking for some interesting ways to use rhubarb and came across this amazing blog, Kevin’s Cooking, and found his Balsamic Black Pepper Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble recipe. Instantly I was intrigued.

For this recipe I used a different crumble topping than Kevin did and I increased the rhubarb and decreased the pepper. Also I used a blueberry balsamic vinegar. 

Rhubarb Strawberry Crumble

Start by placing the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, lemon zest, blueberry balsamic vinegar and black pepper into a sauce pan and cook over medium heat, while stirring occasionally, until the rhubarb starts to breakdown, about 10 minutes.

Set rhubarb strawberry mixture aside and let cool. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and spray a cake pan or small casserole dish with cooking spray. 

In a mixing bowl, combine whole wheat flour, oats, sugars and salt. With your hands, work in the butter until large clumps form. Chill, covered until ready to use.

I like to serve rhubarb strawberry crumble hot and with ice cream, but it’s also good cold and on it’s own!

  1. So happy to see you tried this one. The black pepper and balsamic go so well with the rhubarb. I love a good oat crumble topping and yours looks wonderful. While I used graham crackers in mine, this looks quite tasty Cassandrea and would gladly have a scoop or two with ice cream! 🙂
