I got the recipe from Smitten Kitchen - I guess the addition of baking soda is supposed to bulk up the topping and make it more like a crisp but I'm not sure it worked. I can't imagine that has anything to do with the fact that I lost the lid to my baking soda and it's sitting in my cabinet wide open - oops.
The filling was just strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch.
The topping of brown sugar, sugar, butter, flour and baking soda turned crispy and golden brown in the oven.
This was tasty and perfectly tart and sweet but I think I'm a crisp kind of girl. I like some oats in my topping.
Oh - and speaking of strawberries check this out!
Our strawberry plant has a few perfectly ripe strawberries on it. They're tiny but really sweet - and better than anything we could buy at the store because we grew them ourselves!
