Classic Rhubarb Crumble

A really easy dessert and a fab way to enjoy Rhubarb when in season.

Serves 8

Filling Ingredients

  • 800g rhubarb
  • 1 vanilla pod or ½ teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour

Crumble Ingredients

  • 200g cold unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 300g plain flour
  • 100g golden caster sugar



  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6. 
  2. Grease an ovenproof dish with a little butter.
  3. Chop the rhubarb into 3cm pieces, halving any thicker pieces lengthways. 
  4. Halve the vanilla pod lengthways, scrape out the seeds and toss with the rhubarb, sugar and cornflour. Add the rhubarb to the prepared dish.
  5. To make the crumble, cube the butter into small pieces, then toss with the flour. 
  6. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs with a few larger pieces of butter. (you can do this in your food processor by pulsing just don’t mix too much or it will all come together like a dough!)
  7. Stir in the sugar and 1 pinch of sea salt
  8. Tip the crumble mixture over the rhubarb without pressing down. Place on a baking tray to catch any drips, and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden and bubbling. 


Serve with my gorgeous homemade custard.
