Rhubarb Crumble

Difficulty: Easy

Serves 4

There are some weekly markets near where I work and they always have the most amazing looking produce. I noticed some rhubarb that was just begging to be baked into something so I decided to make a crumble because it’s delicious and easy. To my delight it’s getting kind of wintery in Newcastle, so I decided to make this heartwarming dessert to celebrate.


  • 1 bunch (about 6 sticks) rhubarb
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup Nuttelex, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon sultanas


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Rinse and chop the rhubarb before throwing in a saucepan with the caster sugar. Place on medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Pour evenly into 4 ramekins.
  3. In a bowl combine the oats and brown sugar.
  4. Pour in the melted Nuttelex and vanilla and mix well.
  5. Evenly spoon the oat mixture onto the rhubarb.
  6. Sprinkle with sultanas and bake for about 20-30 minutes or until crumble becomes crisp.
  7. Serve hot with custard or soy ice cream!
