Strawberry Banana Crumble Recipe
Strawberry Banana Crumble Recipe

by Cathy Pollak

One of the great things about strawberries is how well they pair with other fruits. One of my favorite combinations is strawberry and banana. It's perfect for smoothies, yogurt and even ice cream. I figured, why not put these two together and make it into an irresistible crumble? What a good idea that was. It is delicious. And the topping ... I could eat it by the bowlful.

I washed my strawberries, hulled them and cut them into quarters lengthwise. This keeps them mostly intact as they bubble away in the oven. I decided to use my smallest cast iron skillet for this rustic dessert. I love the way it heats up and keeps things warm once removed from the oven. My whole family loved this dessert. It's the perfect ending to a summer meal such as fried chicken. Vanilla ice cream is an absolute must on top of this dessert, especially when warm.
