I often wonder to myself what my favorite dessert is on my blog. Is it the Po Man’s Strawberry Shortcake, Fudgy Brownies, or a batch of my Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies? Then I add another dessert to the family, and it throws me off. This Strawberry Crumble is a new favorite of mine for sure. Maybe it’s because of summer or the fact I have been buying some good batches of strawberries lately.
What is a crumble?
I know there is a lot of curiosity around the difference between a crumble, crisp, and a cobbler. Well, I did a little research, and here is what I found:
Crumble: This dish is made with dessert but has more of a streusel topping with butter, flour, sugar, nuts, and maybe oats. I love crumbles because when you take, if you’re lucky, you will get one of the crunchy bits from the streusel, and that makes the crumble even more decadent.
Crisp: A crisp also consists of fruit, but the topping is less dense. The topping of a crisp is made with nuts, oats, and a little flour. It’s not as heavy as on the topping end like crumbles are.
Cobbler: In my opinion, cobblers are rustic pies made in a casserole pan. They are made with fruit as well, except the topping is entirely dough.
It depends on your mood, the occasion, and the season on which dessert will make the most sense to make.

FAQ about Strawberry Crumble
Not at all. The great thing about crumbles, crisps, and cobblers is you can pretty much use any fruit you want. The fruit that I recommend are those that release liquid when coated in sugar and exposed to heat such as apples, pears, berries, peaches, and plums.
Yes you can. You can put it together and cover it in plastic wrap and bake as normal the day you plan to serve. Now, I am not sure how the streusel will come out, but you can do that. You can also bake completely and put in the oven on “warm” for about 30-40 minutes and serve that way.
