Fresh strawberries are my favorite fruit, of all time. We’ve got a garden full of them and I’ve been searching for a way to use them up.
You can make it a breakfast or a dessert. Top it with whip cream and you have yourself a delicious breakfast. Add a little ice cream, and you have yourself a dessert.
You are going to love this recipe. It’s perfect for serving a crowd, or your family. It is also extremely easy to make. It comes together in a matter of minutes, and gets this delicious chewy crisp to it.
how to make skillet strawberry crumble
Step 1: Heat cast iron skillet over medium heat. I have never made this recipe, using anything else. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you could also use a pan, and transfer it over to a glass pan for baking.
Step 2: Combine strawberries, lemon juice, sugar, and cornstarch in skillet and cook until strawberries are softened and liquid thickens (about 5-7 minutes).
If you are using frozen strawberries, we recommend thawing them, and patting a paper towel over them, to dry them, so the skillet isn’t super liquidy.
Step 3: In a separate bowl, combine oats, sugar, and butter. As the recipe directs, the butter works best with this recipe, when it is melted. It mixes better with the oats and and sugar.
Step 4: Sprinkle crumble over strawberry mixture. I grabbed a small handful, and used my fingers to sprinkle it over the strawberry mixture.
You could also use a spoon and sprinkle it over the strawberry mixture, but I found it easier to use my hands.
Step 5: Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven with the crust gets golden around the edges.
Top with ice cream and enjoy. Best served warm. If you are serving it for breakfast, you could serve it without anything on top, or put a dollop of whipped cream on each serving.
could I make this recipe using frozen strawberries
You could most definitely make this recipe, using frozen strawberries. However, we recommend letting the strawberries defrost.
You could do this by microwaving them, or placing them in the fridge for a few hours, to defrost and thaw.
After they have thawed, be sure to pat them down with a paper towel, or let them drain in a strainer.
