Add a few drops of Balsamic vinegar to the mix to make the strawberry flavour sing. This strawberry crumble takes 30 minutes to cook till golden. Serve with a dollop of thick cream or vanilla custard.


  • 400g strawberries, hulled
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 2tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 150g plain flour
  • 75g hard margarine
  • 75g granulated sugar
  • 25g oatmeal




  1. Turn on the oven to 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6).
  2. Cut up any strawberries that are too big and place into a shallow ovenproof dish. Sprinkle over the caster sugar and Balsamic vinegar.
  3. Place the flour into a large bowl and cut up the margarine into it. Rub together with clean, cool hands until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix in the sugar and oatmeal to form a crumble topping. Evenly spread the crumble over the strawberries.
  4. Place on a baking sheet in the oven and cook until crumble is lightly brown and the fruit is beginning to bubble round the sides (30-35 mins).
  5. Serve hot with cream or ice cream or cold with creme fraiche.
