Why is this our favourite? The crumble to fruit ratio has been perfected, plus the irresistible addition of crunchy walnuts and extra cinnamon makes for a delicious crumble mix. Customise the fruit combination to the seasons. We love adding rhubarb when it's in season.
This recipe is designed for the Small Weber Round Frying Pan.
Prepare the barbecue for indirect cooking over medium-low heat (baking setting- 170°C-190°C). Set up your barbecue with a convection tray and a roasting trivet.
In a Small Weber Round Frying Pan, add the chopped apples, strawberries and sprinkle the caster sugar all over the fruit. Stir to coat the fruit with the sugar.
In a medium bowl add the rolled oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, stir to combine. Create a well in the middle and pour in the melted butter. Combine the mixture until it forms chunky breadcrumbs. Add the chopped walnuts and stir. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the fruit.
Place your crumble onto the trivet. Bake the crumble over indirect medium-low heat, with the lid closed, for 60 minutes, or until the crumble is golden on top.
Once the crumble has cooked, sit aside for at least 15 minutes to cool slightly. Dust with icing sugar (if desired). Serve warm or cold with cream or ice cream.
If rhubarb is in season, swap one punnet of strawberries for 4 stalks of rhubarb chopped.
