Strawberry Crumble

3 Jun

I love strawberry season! Recently, the little red gems have been calling my name in the supermarket. I could not help myself. I bought two baskets of them the other day.   They are so sweet and juicy and so much better when they are in season.  I wanted to make a dessert that would let the strawberries shine on their own so I made individual strawberry crumbles.   According to M, as he was shoveling them into his mouth, these are really good.   Enjoy!

Adapted from here 

Serving Size: 4  


  •  1/2  cups sugar divided
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1  cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Zest of 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1/2 stick of cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 large egg
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 375° F.  Grease 4 individual ramekins; set aside.

In a food processor, combine 1/4 cup of the sugar, the baking powder and flour.  Mix in the salt and the lemon zest, and pulse until everything is combined.  Add the  butter and the  egg ( crack the egg into a bowl and scoop out half with the shell), pulse until the largest chunks are about pea-sized.  The mixture should be crumbly without much loose flour.  Set it aside

In a  bowl, stir together the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice.  Gently mix in the strawberries with a rubber spatula until combined.  Spread the berry mixture into the ramekins.  Crumble the  dough over the top of the berries.  Bake for about 25 minutes or until the top is slightly golden brown.  Cool completely before serving.
