Strawberry Oat Crumble

About the bake

This strawberry oat crumble is simple and full of lovely textures and flavours. Perfect for using up leftover strawberries. We've used macadamia nuts but you could just as easily use pecans or hazelnuts for a stronger nuttier flavour. The key to this recipe is to leave enough of the demerara sugar left over for the crumble topping, allowing it to caramelise in the oven.
