Strawberry Crumble Recipe

Link up your recipe of the week

I made this for dinner with some most excellent friends recently. I was inspired by a Nigella recipe from her Kitchen book but tweaked it a bit, omitting the sugar from the fruit and using a lighter crumble mix.

Strawberry CrumbleIngredients:

500g strawberries washed and hulled
25g ground almonds
4 tsps vanilla essence

For the crumble:
100g plain flour
75g low fat spread
75g rolled oats
75g demerara sugar
100g flaked almonds


  1. Pop strawberries in base of heavy ovenproof dish (preferably one you’d like to serve at table!)
  2. Sprinkle with ground almonds and vanilla essence
  3. Rub in flour and low fat spread lightly with fingers (or in a mixer if you prefer) until it resembles breadcrumbs
  4. Add other crumble ingredients and mix all together
  5. Spread crumble on top of fruit and press down lightly
  6. Bake in a preheated oven (Gas 6, Fan 180C, Conventional 200C) for 20-25 mins until golden brown on top
  7. Serve warm with fresh cream (creme fraiche or low fat yoghurt make a yummy and healthy alternative) or custard
  8. Bake in a hot oven (180 degrees C, fan/200 conventional) for 20-25mins until it looks like this.
