Rhubarb Crumble

Over the weekend, I was looking for something to do with the rhubarb I had left over from when I made rhubarb tian for the Daring Baker challenge. I was thinking about pie; they’re normally easy for me to whip up, since I usually make several pie crusts at once and freeze them so that I always have homemade pie crust on hand. However, all out of pie crusts and not in the mood to make more, I decided on the next best thing – a crumble. It was quick and easy, and just as satisfying as a slice of rhubarb pie. Try it this weekend for your Easter guests!

For the filling:

For the topping:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the filling ingredients.

For the topping, use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the flour in a medium bowl. Add in the brown sugar, oats, and salt.

Place the filling into an 8×8″ baking dish. Sprinkle the topping over the rhubarb mixture.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Let cool 15 minutes before serving, if you can!

  6. This will be our second year of rhubarb growing in the garden…hopefully we’ll get some growth out of them! On your pie crusts, do you get them all pressed into the pie dish and ready to go…then just plastic wrap them up and throw ’em in the freezer? I was wondering because I’m thinking about starting to do that too.

  7. Crystal – I’m usually lazy and just put the balls of dough into a freezer bag, press down, and seal…but putting the dough into a pie dish is a great idea and will probably save you some time!

  10. I’m so excited that rhubarb is coming into season soon. This is such an easy way to use it and I like that it doesn’t have too many ingredients. Let that rhubarb taste shine through!

  11. would frozen rhubarb work? I don’t even know where to find the fresh stuff!

    by Jennifurla on Apr 1, 2010 at 2:08 pm

  12. Jennifurla – I haven’t tried that myself, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work just as well! My grocery store has rhubarb right now, although I normally like to get it from the farmers market. Good luck! 🙂

  23. I scored some early rhubarb at the store this weekend, and I’ve been pondering what to make. This looks like a perfect weeknight rhubarb dish! I like that the rhubarb isn’t mixed with anything, and can stand on it’s own!
