Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble is the perfect balance between sweet and tart.  This is one of my all time favorite rhubarb recipes.


  • 4 cups strawberries hulled and quartered
  • 4 cups rhubarb trimmed and chopped into one inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Crumble Topping

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecan


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 8 x 11 baking dish with nonstick baking spray for easier clean up.
  2. In large bowl mix together strawberries, rhubarb, 3 tablespoons flour and sugar. Spoon in baking dish.
  3. In medium bowl combine brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, softened butter, rolled oats and cinnamon. Using pastry knife or fork cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in chopped pecans. Sprinkle over strawberry rhubarb mixture.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes or until top is browned and mixture is bubbly. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  5. Leftovers should be stored in refrigerator.


  • Shop around for rhubarb via the telephone unless of course you grow it.  Sometimes it is difficult to find.
  • Do not eat the leaves of the rhubarb. Remove them and discard them.  They can be toxic. Learn more at Modern Farmer on 6 Secretly Poisonous Plants.
  • Add some nuts to the crumble.  It makes it even more delicious and really complements the fruit.  I personally like pecans but you could add sliced almonds or chopped walnuts.  As we say often in this house wear what you dig.
  • I find that one half cup of sugar is perfect for this recipe bringing out the best in the strawberry rhubarb combination.
  • This crumble is best baked the same day as it is served so the topping has a little crunch to it.  However that has never stopped me from eating it ice cold straight out of refrigerator with a spoon.
