This Rhubarb Strawberry Almond Crumble is a luscious, quick, and relatively healthy dessert that you can enjoy during the summer time.
Hey everyone! The weather might not resemble summer in many areas yet (It seems that spring has mostly been long and cold in Canada), but I’m gradually moving to summer desserts. And what are the best summer desserts? Ice cream and fruit and berry pies, in my book.
And while I don’t mind turning my oven on in summer once in a while, I rarely bake something complicated. A rustic galette or a crumble is a good way to go.
Also, rhubarb & strawberry is one of my favourite summer flavours. Isn’t it just the perfect marriage? Unfortunately, you cannot find rhubarb in our area too often, and when you find it, you cannot allow yourself to think twice – you get it! Thus, one Friday night I was lucky to stumble across some rhubarb. I always love trying interesting combinations; however, as I hadn’t had an opportunity to think over different ideas, I opted for a classic combo.
Still, I wanted to elevate a crumble to a different level, so I decided to incorporate some almond meal. Oh boy! This Rhubarb Strawberry Almond Crumble turned out good, so luscious and with a delightful topping. Please keep in mind that thanks to the almond meal (Which is gluten-free), it takes a little longer to bake the crumble to avoid the topping being “wet” or “soggy”. And while it was baked to our liking, we noted some parts tasted a bit “raw” but in a good way (Like the texture of marzipan). If you don’t like such texture in your crumble, please feel free to fully switch the almond meal to flour.
With or without the almond part, this crumble will be delicious!
I hope you get some rhubarb on your hands and try this Rhubarb Strawberry Almond Crumble.
Cheers for now.
