Strawberries are one of my favourite fruits, but I often find that when they're made into a dessert the result can be too sweet for my tastes. This apple and strawberry crumble is the perfect solution for that! The apples add the perfect amount of tart flavor to balance out the sweetness of the strawberries in this crumble; this is one of my favorite fruit desserts. Even the most dedicated apple crumble fans willl appreciate the strawberries in this!
the ingredients are very basic for this apple strawberry recipe:
The steps involved are very simple for this recipe, its basically foolproof!
step one: add the cubed appled and strawberries to a large bowl, then add the lemon juice, vanilla, cornstarch, and spices and stir until fruit is completely coated
step two: in a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar and flour, then pour the butter overtop and mix until completely combined
step three: add the fruit in an even layer to the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish, then spinkle crumble mixture over top as evenly as possible
step four: bake at 375 F for about 45 minutes, or until fruit filling is softened and bubbly and topping is golden brown. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving with some ice cream!
Technically yes, you can substitute frozen strawberries, however they should be thawed and drained before use otherwise the filling will be too liquidy. The best option is fresh strawberries if you can get them
The main difference, in my opinion, is that a crisp has oats in the topping while a crumble does not. If you'd like to convert this to a strawberry apple crisp instead you can sub half the flour for some oats!
This crumble stays good in the fridge for a few days, and honestly I was sneaking bites from the fridge even while it was cold. To reheat, simple scoop out into a bowl and microwave until warm. Alternatively, you can bake the crumble one more time for about 15-20 minutes to reheat. I do not recommend freezing it!
Preheat oven to 375 F
In a large bowl, stir together the apple, strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cornstarch, cinnamon, and ginger; set aside
In a small bowl stir together the brown sugar and flour, then drizzle melted butter over top and stir until mixture resembles wet sand
Transfer fruit mixture to a 9x13 baking dish and spread evenly, then top with an even layer of crumble mixture
Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until crumble is golden brown on top and bubbly
Serve warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if desired
