Fresh Strawberry Streusel Recipe

This fresh strawberry streusel recipe combines sour cream, a delicious streusel and ripe strawberries for a delicious and easy dessert!

Oh my…welcome to warm weather, leaves on the trees and strawberry season! Today I’m sharing an easy dessert where the streusel does double duty as the crust and the topping. Love it when that happens. This Fresh Strawberry Streusel recipe also calls for sour cream…which you have to admit makes just about anything taste great. It went together in no time and when it was in the oven, the aroma was amazing. I served it warm with whipped topping and it was a hit. Thumbs up for sure!

The streusel for this recipe does double-duty and acts as the bottom “crust” of the dessert and also the topping. That’s one of the reasons it is so easy and quick to put together. If by some chance this fresh strawberry streusel doesn’t get eaten when it’s fresh, just cover the pan and it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days. I am pretty sure it won’t last that long though!

Fresh Strawberry Streusel Recipe Tips

I mentioned in the recipe that substitutes for the fresh strawberries could be strawberry jam or pie filling. Personally, I think homemade jam of any flavor would be perfect. I think that cherry pie filling would be delicous as well. If you use jam, you can sort of swirl it into the sour cream layer. I am definitely trying it that way…and soon.

    Ann, I was going to suggest almond flour for the person who needed to substitute something for the wheat flour. We have been eating very little carbs for quite a while and we are gradually adding some back to our diet. I bought our first loaf of bread since Jan. 1! So I have been doing very little baking with the exception of Leo’s birthday. May have to make an exception for this recipe, too! :)

    1. Ann Drake says:

      I’ll bet this would be good with almond flour…good for you on the carbs though!

    It looks so delicious, Ann! It’s on my “To Do” list for this weekend. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I’ve always spelled streusel with an e, not an a. Still like to eat it, no matter how it’s spelled.

  11. I am going to make this ASAP…..I received my order today ,love my little pillow . Thanks Ann

  12. Joanne Boulter says:

    Looks so amazingly good I think I can smell it clear to Utah!

  13. Ann,

    Love your blog, although I must admit I am new to this “blog” thing. I especially like yours because I am guessing we are close in age (from your cute picture) and we definitely like the same things. Let’s just say “we relate”. Here is my question. How do you think this dessert would work with gluten free flour? My husband and daughter both have celiac disease so I seldom bake anything with wheat flour because I end up eating it all! Not good! Let me know what you think if you have time. Thanks, Prudence

  14. Thanks Ann…sounds perfect for this upcoming weekend! ;)

  15. Wonder how it would work if you threw in some Rhubarb with the strawberries? Looks good!

  16. Penny @ The Comforts of Home says:

    It looks wonderful! I had fresh strawberry shortcake the other day.
