Quick Strawberry Crumble with Vanilla
For the crumble
- 100 g oat flakes crunchy
- 100 g wheat flour
- 150 g sugar
- 200 g butter
- 1 pinch of salt
For the filling
- 800 g strawberries
- 1/2 vanilla pod
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- Preheat the oven to 180° C.
- First prepare the crumble for the topping. Put the flour, rolled oats, sugar and pinch of salt in a bowl and mix everything with your hands. Then add the softened butter in pieces and make a firm dough. Work with your hands to make coarse crumbles. The consistency should be very thick and crumbly. If the dough is too liquid, add a little more flour. Put the crumble in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
- Wash strawberries and cut off the stalks, halve them. Put them in a bowl and mix in the lemon juice and scratch the contents of vanilla pod into it.
- Now grease the baking dish with butter or vegetable oil and pour in the strawberry mixture. Using your fingers, crumble the crumble evenly in a layer over the strawberries. The surface should be covered.
- Bake the strawberry crumble for about 30 minutes until the surface is golden-brown. Take it out of the oven, let it cool slightly and serve warm with custard or vanilla ice cream.
