i get joythebaker updates via email. i love them. i love her baking and i love the way she writes. i pretty much always love everything i make that comes from her website. as for this strawberry pineapple crumble- when i saw it come up in my email i was like oh my, i must make this. i'm glad i made it because i will share it with others but i wish i would have remembered i don't really like cooked strawberries!! fail. so, it was really good minus the cooked strawberry taste, for me! if you like the taste of cooked should totally make this!!! :) either way- i was happy to use strawberries and pineapples together. i love both very very much!!!!

what you need:

1 pound strawberries, hulled and cut in half
1 pound peeled and diced fresh pineapple
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
pinch of salt
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
1 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup brown sugar

what you do:

Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350*.

Toss diced fruit together in an 8-inch square baking dish.

In a small dish, whisk together 3 tablespoons white sugar, cornstarch, 1/4 cup of flour and pinch of salt. Toss the mixture with the diced fruit. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add the cold butter cubes. Use your fingers to break up the cold butter cubes into the flour mixture. Add the oats and toss together until the butter bits are about the size of the oat flakes.

Pour the oat mixture over the prepared fruit. Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until juices from the fruit bubble up around the sides of the pan.

Remove the crumble from the oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
