Strawberry crumble

Small sized pastry with the ultimate summer fruit.

Summer tastes like strawberries and strawberries taste like summer. It’s a given. Somehow summer hasn’t found the Amsterdam atmosphere yet, so I look for my piece of the season in the taste of the fruit of the moment: strawberries.

All day errday. In my yogurt for breakfast, in my smoothie(bowl), in my salad, as snack. For dessert, simply  fresh with some whipped cream. D-i-v-i-n-e.

But, as for all freshly bought fruits they tend to go bad after a day or two. Or at least look a little… questionable. That’s the point you use them for either a syrup or put it in some sort of pastry.

I chose the latter this time, for my BF and me. As a crumble and in a small glass cup.

For 2 crumbles  you need:

Dough:

  • 100 gr flower
  • 65 gr butter
  • 60 gr sugar
  • Little bit of lemon zest
  • Pinch of salt

Filling:

  • Handfull of strawberries, diced
  • 1-2 tb sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (Celsius, convection oven)
  2. Mix al dough ingredients in a bowl together until you have a crumbly dough. Leave it to rest in de fridge.
  3. Mix sugar and strawberries together and fill up the cup slightly over the half and fill up the rest with the crumble dough.
  4. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes of till golden brown.

P.s. adding raspberries is also tasty. Or use use raspberries instead of strawberries :P
