Sunday picnic dessert anyone?

Rhubarb Apple Crumble

This recipe only needs 30 minutes in the oven, but is best if you allow it a few hours to set. We suggest making it in the morning, before it gets too hot today and then whipping it out tonight with a scoop of ice cream for the ultimate end of week treat.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup large-flake oats
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon*
  • 2/3 cup cold, unsalted butter

For the filling:

  • 3 Gala apples, peeled, cut in ½ inch cubes
  • 3 cups chopped rhubarb ½ inch thick
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon*
  • ¼ tsp salt
    • *Available from Well Seasoned


  1. Position rack in centre of oven, then pre-heat to 375F.
  2. Topping: Stir flour with oats, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Grate in butter and work in, using fingertips, until crumbly. Refrigerate.
  3. Filling: Toss apples, rhubarb, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Transfer to an 8-in. baking dish or pan.
  4. Sprinkle topping evenly over filling. Bake until top is golden and juices bubble around edges, 25 to 30 min. Let cool for 2 hr. Serve with ice cream.
