Apple and rhubarb crumble with oats


    A simple crumble with an intense rhubarb flavor countered by the apples. Easy to adapt with any fruits you have left over from the week. A real Sunday favorite. Its great because rhubarb goes with almost every fruit so its easy to make this recipe suit you.

    2 people made this


    • 4-5 large sticks of rhubarb
    • 3-4 large cooking Apples
    • 6 tbsp cold water
    • 8-10 tbsp caster sugar
    • For the Crumble
    • 110g Butter
    • 110g soft brown sugar or Demerera sugar
    • 185g flour
    • 2 handfuls rolled oats


    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
    2. Chop up the Rhubarb sticks into bite size pieces and put in a pan with 3 tbsp of water. Chop the apple up into bite size slices and put in a separate pan with the other 3 tbsp of water.
    3. Boil down both the pans for 5-6 minutes or until the fruit softens. Halfway through the boiling time add 4 tbsp sugar to each of the pans. Stir through and continue boiling until the times up.
    4. After the fruit has softened, taste each fruit, and if either of the fruits is to sour add more sugar to your liking.
    5. Then mix the 2 fruits together in one pan and add the fruit to an oven proof dish.
    6. Meanwhile rub the butter and flour together, and when you have a breadcrumb texture add the sugar and the rolled oats.
    7. Add a sprinkling of sugar on top of the fruit and evenly spread the crumble on the fruit. Add one final sprinkling of sugar on the crumble and bake for 35-40 mins until the crumble is golden.
    8. Take out and serve immediately with double cream.
