How to make the perfect rhubarb crumble for any occasion

Making rhubarb crumble is remarkably straightforward. Begin by chopping the rhubarb, then stew it with sugar, butter, and starch before topping it with a delectable crumble. Once baked in the oven, you'll have a delicious dessert ready to enjoy.

Ingredients for the rhubarb filling:

  • 26.5 oz of rhubarb, cut into 0.4-inch pieces,
  • 1.76 oz of fine baking sugar,
  • 1 tablespoon of butter,
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract,
  • 1 tablespoon of potato or cornstarch.

How to prepare:

  1. The perfect crumble requires 5.3 oz of wheat flour, 3.9 oz of soft butter, vanilla sugar, and demerara sugar.
  2. Combine the flour with the butter until you achieve a crumbly texture. Then, add vanilla and demerara sugar, mixing gently until the crumble is ready to layer over the filling.
  3. Next, sprinkle the rhubarb filling with the crumble topping and place it in an oven preheated to 374 degrees F. Bake for around 35 minutes, or until the crumble is golden and crunchy and the rhubarb has softened slightly.
  4. It's worth noting that some juice may leak onto the crumble during baking, enriching the dessert with additional flavor and aroma, making it even more irresistible.
Preparing rhubarb crumble is a simple process that yields a dessert filled with contrasting textures and flavors, perfect for serving at any occasion. Give it a try and discover why this delightful dish has won over the hearts of many.
