Rhubarb Crumble

This is a recipe from "Lets Cook Local" (2011-2013), a WI project funded by the Big Lottery Local Food. It builds on the success of "Lets Cook" teaching young parents from disadvantaged areas how to cook using local food as much as practically possible.

Serves: 4


  • 500g Rhubarb
  • 75g Flour
  • 25g Oats
  • 100g Sugar
  • 50g Butter or Margarine


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C Gas 5
  2. Rub the butter or margarine into the flour
  3. Stir in 75g sugar and all the oats
  4. Wash the rhubarb and cut into chunks about 1 cm big
  5. Place these in a baking dish (or small individual dishes)
  6. Sprinkle the remaining sugar on the top
  7. Cover with the crumble mixture
  8. Bake for 40 mins until golden brown


This is a great recipe for using seasonal fruit and as an alternative a mixture can be used eg apples and blackberries
