  • 175 g Self-raising flour
  • 175 g Butter softened
  • 175 g Granulated sugar
  • A bunch of rhubarb
  • 3 tbsp sugar


Preheat the oven to 190C/170 fan

    Mix together the butter, flour and sugar until you have a fine breadcrumb.

    • Add the flour, sugar and butter to a large mixing bowl or food processor if you are using on.
    • If you are making the crumble by hand, rub the pieces of butter/flour/sugar together until you have a breadcrumb. Shake the bowl to make the larger pieces come to the surface and then rub them in.
    • If you are short for time, you can also mix it together in a food processor.

    Prepare the rhubarb and place it in a baking dish.

    • Clean and chop your rhubarb into pieces about an inch long. Add them to a baking dish. If you find rhubarb quite tart, you can add a wee bit of sugar at this point to balance it out. We put in about 3 tbsp which was about right for us.

    Pour over the crumble mix

      Bake the rhubarb crumble

      • Bake for 35-40 minutes. It’s ready when the top looks golden and the rhubarb has softened and is starting to bubble through the topping.
      • Serve with custard/ice cream and enjoy!
