One of my all time favourite desserts is a crumble and the one we make most often is a traditional rhubarb crumble – as we grow rhubarb in the garden and always have so much to use up throughout rhubarb season. A rhubarb crumble makes a nice change from the usual apple crumble or apple and blackberry crumble! Over recent years I’ve been experimenting with flavours, making a rhubarb gooseberry crumble and now a rhubarb ginger crumble.

How do you make an easy rhubarb and ginger crumble?

This is a really easy crumble recipe, using fresh rhubarb and stem ginger that we bought in a jar. The rhubarb and ginger get baked briefly in the oven before the crumble topping is added. The crumble is then baked until it’s golden brown and bubbling around the edges. Delicious!

Can you vary this recipe?

You could try using glace ginger or grated fresh ginger for this recipe although we haven’t tried either. You could also use frozen rhubarb or tinned rhubarb in place of the fresh fruit which work well. We also sometimes use brown sugar instead of caster sugar which is a lovely alternative.

The only other variation we do sometimes is adding a handful of rolled oats to the crumble mixture which adds a nice texture when you fancy it.

How you serve your home made crumble really depends on taste. Some people love it plain, some love it with custard and some love it with cream or vanilla ice cream. It’s best served warm but can be enjoyed cold too.
