Pineapple Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

Our garden is overflowing the rhubarb right now!  And, strawberries are just about in season here too.  So, combining this veggie and fruit with sweet pineapple made for a delightful {and easy} dessert!

Pineapple Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble 

1 box yellow cake mix {or, make your own}
1 lb. strawberries, diced
4 stalks rhubarb, sliced
1 can (large) crushed pineapple
2 T butter

Begin by tossing the rhubarb and strawberries together in a large bowl.

Pour the crushed pineapple into the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 glass baking dish.

Add the strawberry mixture over the top.

Then, dump the cake mix over the top of the fruit.

Spread out until smoothed.

Slice the Ts of butter very thin, and lay them over the top of the cake.

Bake at 350 for 45 - 55 minutes, until the fruit layer is bubbling and the top is lightly browned.

Serve warm, or at room temperature.

  1. Oh man. I love dump cake :) Your pictures make me wish I had a rhubarb plant. I have only been able to find it frozen here in Arizona.

  2. I am going to have to go check my dad's plants!

  3. Hi Sno White,
    Your Pineapple Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble looks delicious. It is a great combination of flavor that I can almost taste, yum! Thanks for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and come back soon!

  4. All that fruit would surely make for one taste-tastic crumble.

  5. Mmmm I love strawberries and rhubarb together, such a perfect combination! Your crumble looks so good, it's such a comforting dessert!!!

    1. Thanks, Maria! It's one we love - certainly perfect for spring.

  6. Silly question but if you DIY cake it's just the flour,sugar,baking powder mix right no wet ingredients?
    Thanks A Bunch!
    Only Jesus Saves :D

    1. That's a great question! I have a recipe for a yellow cake mix here:


      Now, the question will be getting the vanilla flavor into the DIY version. My recommendation would be to mix the vanilla and sugar together and then mix in all the other dry ingredients. Cut in the butter and sprinkle over the fruit base.

      Let me know if you give it a try and how it worked out!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
