Strawberry Rhubarb Double Crisp



On Allrecipes.com this recipe is called cake, but there’s not a hint of cake here. It’s a crisp with a top and bottom plus a simple glaze that’s poured over tart rhubarb and sweet strawberries.

The glaze alone is worth making again. It makes the fruit sweet without being grainy and I can see myself using it for other recipes with blueberries, cherries, peaches and pears.

Strawberry Rhubarb Double Crisp
Printer Version
Topping
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup quick cooking oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup butter

Fruit Filling
4 cups rhubarb, chopped
1 pint fresh strawberries, halved
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a bowl combine flour, packed brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Gently press half of the mixture into an ungreased 9-inch round baking pan.

3. Place chopped rhubarb across the bottom. Top with strawberries.

4. In a saucepan stir together sugar and cornstarch. Add water and vanilla. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until it lightly coats the back of a spoon. Pour glaze over fruit. Sprinkle fruit with remaining crumb mixture.

5. Bake for 1 hour. Scoop and serve with vanilla ice-cream.

I love that the fruit is bookended by crisp. The more crisp, the better in my opinion!

I am all about Rhubarb right now, and a good crisp is always welcome in my kitchen! This looks wonderful!

Shar said...

so i made this last night. good idea to make it after the kids are in bed...then you don't have to share :) i didn't have enough rhubarb so added some green apples and frozen blueberries. i think it's worth mentioning that if you use frozen fruit, it should either be thawed and drained or add a bit more corn startch to the glaze. mine was a bit runny but still SOOO delicious.

Jannett said...
