  • 500 grams rhubarb
  • 400 grams strawberries
  • 100 grams sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp water

Crumble Topping

  • 210 grams plain flour
  • 135 grams unsalted butter
  • 120 grams sugar


  1. Wash and cut 500 grams of rhubarb stalks into 1 inch pieces. Peel off any obviously stringy bits that are too difficult to cut through. Set aside.

  2. Wash and hull 400 grams of strawberries and cut in half. Set aside in a bowl.

  3. Place the rhubarb and strawberries into a medium sauce pan along with the 100 grams of sugar, 1 tsp of ground cinnamon and 2 tbsp of water.

  4. Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4.

  5. Simmer gently for 8-10 minutes. As soon as the rhubarb mixture is soft then remove from the heat. Carefully taste and add more sugar if needed.

  6. Place in your baking dish. Mine is 27 x 16 cm and 7 cm deep. This sort of size keeps the thickness of the  crumble layer  just right. A 7"-8" square dish is perfect too.

  7. Place the 140 grams flour, 90 grams of butter and 80 grams of sugar in a food processor and pulse until it forms breadcrumbs. You can also just rub it in with your fingers until breadcrumbs are formed. 

  8. Tip the crumble mixture on top of the stewed rhubarb and bake in the oven for about 40 minutes.

    The fruit will be bubbling through in places and the top should be golden brown.

  9. Apply To Boomer Face.

Recipe Notes

  • Use the best fruit you can.
  • Stew the rhubarb until soft and tender.
  • Taste the stewed rhubarb carefully and add more sugar if needed. Be careful it is very hot.
  • Use the dish size recommended so as to keep the layer of crumble in the right ratio to the stewed fruit below it.
  • You can toast your crumble a little before if you like your crumble topping super crunchy.
