Rhubarb Crumble

For 4 people. Cooking time: 30 min.


  • 450 g rhubarb
  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of water


  • 75 g plain flour
  • 50 g Demerara sugar
  • 50 g ground almonds (optional)
  • 50 g butter chilled cut into cubes

To serve

  • Hot custard or cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Roughly chop the rhubarb and put in a pan with the sugar and water.
  3. Simmer gently over a low heat until the rhubarb becomes soft — remove from the heat and leave to one side.
  4. In a separate bowl mix the flour and butter together so it resembles breadcrumbs, add in the sugar, and almonds.
  5. Put the rhubarb mixture into an oven proof dish and cover with the topping.
  6. Place this in the oven and cook for roughly 30 minutes — you just want the topping to be golden.
  7. Let the crumble cool and serve with fresh cream or custard.
