Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Mix together the flour, dark brown sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Rub in the butter till evenly crumbly. Press just under half of the mixture in the bottom of a 23cm square tin. Sprinkle all of the sliced strawberries over the base.
In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornflour. Stir in the water; bring to the boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Pour the mixture over the strawberries, then sprinkle with the remaining crumble topping mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Serve with custard, cream or ice cream if desired.
Some people would argue that there's no such thing as 'too sweet' but I'd have to disagree. This was so sugary that it nearly knocked out my taste-buds, and I'd already reduced the amount of brown sugar (to 180g) on the recommendation of another reviewer! However, the strawberries and sauce were delicious and although I suggest being much more frugal with the sweet stuff I would love to try making this again. - 28 Jun 2012
