Rhubarb is a forgotten treasure for many of us. Rhubarb crumble is an easy dessert to make, bake and serve either warm or cool. Here's how to make it.
Things You'll Need
- 4 cups rhubarb
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- dash of salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 stick butter
- Deep pie pan
- Whisk or egg beater
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cut the rhubarb stalks off the plant. These stalks look like red pieces of celery. Rinse to remove any of the soil and strip them of any of the stringy pieces of cellulose. Cut them into 1/2-inch pieces. Put them into the pie pan.
Toss 1 cup granulated sugar and 2 tbsp flour into the pie pan. Stir to mix all the ingredients.
Mix 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 cup flour, oatmeal, salt, cinnamon and baking powder in a small bowl. Stir until all of these ingredients are thoroughly combined.
Crack the egg into another small bowl and use a whisk or egg beater to beat the egg until it begins to expand in the bowl and turn a lemony yellow color. Add the beaten egg to the sugar-flour mixture in the other small bowl.
Spread the sugar-flour-egg mixture (this makes the crumble or crust) over the top of the rhubarb pieces that are in the pie pan. Shake the pan to make the crumble settle into the rhubarb.
Melt the butter and drizzle it over the top of the rhubarb crumble.
Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes. The rhubarb crumble will brown on top and you will see evidence of a thick sticky syrup underneath the crumble. Serve warm or cold.
Tips & Warnings
- Rhubarb crumble is delicious topped with vanilla ice cream, custard sauce or whipped cream.
- Do not eat any other part of the rhubarb plant other than the stalks.
