Apple/Strawberry Heaven Crumble

Barbara Oseland


A little taste of changing seasons. Fresh fruit is always the best, but you can use frozen if you do not have fresh strawberries on hand. Just thaw and discard excess water. These also freeze very nicely! You can top this off with a strawberry glaze and/or whip cream or ice cream.

How to Make Apple/Strawberry Heaven Crumble


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush a round spring form pan with melted butter or spray to lightly grease. Line the base with wax paper. Place the prepared pan on a baking tray.
    2. Use an electric beater to beat the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Use a large spoon to fold in the combined flour and the milk until well combined.
    3. Spoon into the prepared pan. Use the back of the spoon to smooth the surface. Arrange the apple and strawberry on top. No need to force the fruit into the batter.
    4. To make the crumble topping, place the flour and butter in a bowl. Use your fingertips or hand held pastry blender to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add in the sugar.
    5. Sprinkle the crumble topping over the apple and strawberry. Bake in oven for 1 hour 10 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring entire spring form pan to a wire rack to cool slightly. Release the spring form sides and transfer to platter, or serve from the bottom of the spring form pan before serving. Serve cake warm or at room temperature. I have also had this cold as a "coffee cake" for breakfast and is wonderful.
  2. Notes:
    You can make this recipe up to 1 day ahead if serving whole for guests. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Bring to room temperature to serve. To reheat individual slices, place on a microwave-safe plate and heat in microwave on Medium for 1 minute or until warm.
    This may also be frozen after cooling completely. Wrap in cling wrap and place in large freezer bag. This would need to be cut in 1/2 or 1/4 sections. Let thaw out in fridge or counter. Would not recommend to "food save" this product to store or freeze.
