This seasonal strawberry-rhubarb crumble is easy to put together and makes for a great dessert for two people. Sweet and just a touch tart, a perfect treat.
Who doesn’t love a seasonal, fruity dessert that’s ready in under an hour? This Mini Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble is divine, especially topped with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream or yogurt.
I was inspired to make this dessert after a visit with a high school friend who was in town recently. It was so fun to catch up on the patio of a good restaurant on a beautiful day, sharing memories, a bunch of laughs, and of course, dessert!
One of the desserts we shared at lunch the other day was a rhubarb crumble. When we walked into the restaurant we saw the kitchen staff chopping a bunch of rhubarb, so it must have been in the back of my mind for a few days.
Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble for Two is easy to put together and it makes a great dessert for just a couple of folks. If you’d like, you can easily double this recipe. I probably should have done just that, because I wanted more!
When I was little, our wonderful neighbor, Mrs. Sutton, grew rhubarb in her backyard garden. I remember how amazed I was by its enormous green leaves (they’re poisonous, so no eating the leaves) and the pretty crimson stalks, all the while dreaming of the glorious pie she would make with that rhubarb!
If you love rhubarb you should try a few of my other rhubarb recipes, like Strawberry-Rhubarb Almond Streusel Muffins (who can resist that streusel) or Cherry-Rhubarb and White Chocolate Bread Pudding — mmm — one of my recent favorites!
Since I have mini cast iron skillets, I knew this smaller batch dessert would be a ideal option. It was so easy to put together, and in all honesty, it turned into my lunch the day I made it!Print
