Rhubarb Crumble Recipe

 

Ingredients

1 bunch rhubarb, trimmed, cut into 3cm lengths
2 oranges, zest finely grated, juiced
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup demerara sugar
1 cup plain flour
1,5 cup traditional rolled oats
1/2 cup nuts, finely copped
1/2 raisins
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
100g chilled butter, chopped

serves 6

Preheat oven to 190C/170C fan forced.

In a pan put several spoons of water, brown sugar, rhubarb, raisins, orange juice and zest and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes.

Combine flour, oats cinnamon and nuts (this time I took almonds and hazelnuts) in a large bowl. Rub in butter to make coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/3 cup of demerara sugar.
In a 2-liter (8-cup) oven proof dish place rhubarb mixture. Scatter oat mixture over rhubarb; sprinkle with remaining demerara sugar.

Bake for 40-45 minutes or until golden and bubbling.

Stand for 10 minutes. Serve.

P.s. Wash rhubarb well to remove any dirt from stalks. Trim stalks, discarding leaves which are poisonous. You can store rhubarb wrapping trimmed and washed stalks in plastic food wrap in a crisper section of fridge for up to 3 days.
