Apple and Rhubarb Crumble

The kids loved this recipe…. the rhubarb I bought this week was absolutely beautiful and made up for the fact that I didnt have that many apples left after previous recipes/ kids cleaning out the fruit bowl.


  • 5 apples
  • 2 good size stalks of rhubarb, remember to peel the strings off it first, these ARE NOT pleasant if left on….. chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 oz margarine/butter
  • 4 oz wholewheat flour
  • 4 tablespoons of white sugar
  • small pinch of salt


  • Add the chopped rhubarb to the pan… give it a couple of minutes before adding the apple… rhubarb takes a little longer to cook
  • Peel and chop apples into thin slices
  • Place in saucepan, sprinkle a little water over, the 2tbsp sugar
  • Simmer gently for 5 minutes
  • Drain a little and place in greased cooking dish
  • Mix together flour, salt and white sugar
  • Add in the fat in small pieces and rub together with fingertips until a breadcrumb look is achieved
  • Sprinkle over the softened apples/ rhubarb
  • Place in over at 220 c (gas mark 7) for about 30 minutes
