Rhubarb and ginger crumble

    1 hour

    This crumble is delicious. It's not quite the same as a traditional crumble, but worth a try. Underneath the sweet and crisp topping, lies a rhubarb and ginger custard filling. Serve as is or with ice cream.

    Used margerine instead of butter  -  19 May 2013


    After making this recipe with the ingredients listed, I thought it had a lot of dark brown sugar in it - it turned out a little too sweet for me.  -  13 May 2013
