Apple and rhubarb crumble

So I thought I would begin a series of recipes using perennial fruit and vegetables with an old favourite of mine, apple and rhubarb crumble. Who on earth wouldn’t want to dive right into that?


  • 1 eating apple…I tend to use granny smith
  • 3 or 4 stems of rhubarb
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 100g of flour
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 60g butter
  • 60g rolled oats (optional)



  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C or gas mark 6
  2. Chop up the apple and rhubarb into thick chunks, sprinkle on the 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar and place into an oven-proof dish.
  3. in a food processor, combine all of the other ingredients and pulse until you have a crumble mixture.
  4. Spread the crumble mix on top of the apple and rhubarb and bake for 45 minutes until the crumble is molten and bubbling.

  1. On the Apple and rhubarb recipe possibly add a footnote about adding the first lot of sugar to the fruit as you are bound to get some numpty adding it all into the topping . Just a thought
