Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

17 Jun

We got some beautiful rhubarb in our fresh box. This recipe was delicious. I made it in a 9×13. Next time ill either make it in a smaller pan and halve the topping or keep it in the bigger pan and double the rhubarb and strawberry!

Strawberry coffee cake

This one came out really good, but not at all like the picture in the recipe. My strawberries never thickened enough. So the strawberry layer baked into the cake layer. It was still delicious. I’ll have to try this one again!

Strawberry Coffee Cake
adapted from joy the baker

1 heaping cup sliced strawberries
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons water
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping:
3 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

To make the topping:

Combine all the topping ingredients in a bowl and rub together with your fingertips until crumbly. Set aside.

To make the strawberry mixture:

Combine strawberries, 1/3 cup sugar, water and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly until the sauce is thickened and strawberries are soft and somewhat broken down. Set aside to cool.

Grease and flour a 10×10-inch baking dish, knocking out excess flour, and set aside.

To make the coffee cake:

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla extract.

Sift dry ingredients together. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter in 3 parts alternating with the sour cream in 2 parts, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Beat just until combined.

Spoon 2/3 of the batter into the prepared pan. Spread the cooled strawberry mixture over the batter. Spoon the remaining batter onto the strawberries and spread evenly. Top with streusel topping and bake in the upper third of the oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

i needed to use up the rest of those strawberries 😀  and was at the mercy of what i had in the pantry – i searched and searched and finally decided on this recipe.  i doubled the recipe to make a 9×13 pan.  its ok – nothing spectacular.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

strawberry nutella crumb bars

27 Mar

using up some strawberries before they turned (thats a good excuse right?)  this was ok — i think you can leave out the nutella – between the strawberries and chocolate crust it gets lost.  i had a 9×9 pan so they came out a little too thin.

 

Strawberry Nutella Crumb Bars

 

For the crust:
1 – 9 ounce box chocolate wafer cookies, or chocolate graham crackers, finely crushed
1/4 cup sugar
1 stick butter, melted

For the filling:
1 cup diced strawberries  (i used 2.5 cups)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup Nutella (probably used close to one cup)

For the topping:
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
3 tablespoons butter, cold
Pinch of salt

Heat the oven to 350 F.  Spray a 8×8″ pan with non-stick spray, line with parchment paper leaving a three inch over hang on each side, and spray that with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl combine the cookie crumbs, sugar and butter  and stir until all the crumbs are coated with the butter.  Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and press it out evenly.  Bake for 10 minutes.

While the crust bakes prepare the filling and the topping.

For the filling combine the strawberries with the sugar and allow to stand for ten minutes.  Drain off half of the liquid, then add the cornstarch and vanilla.  Stir to combine.

For the topping combine the sugar, salt, and flour until evenly mixed.  Rub the butter in with your fingers until the mixture is coarse and crumbly and no large pieces of butter remain.  Refrigerate for ten minutes.

Heat the Nutella in the microwave for ten seconds, or until it thins out slightly.  Pour the Nutella over the prepared crust and carefully spread it to the edges of the crust.  Evenly distribute the strawberries, then the crumb topping.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the topping is crisp and the berries are bubbling all over.  Allow to cool completely in the pan before using the parchment to carefully lift the bars out of the pan.  Cut into bars.
