Rhubarb Crumble


rhubarb crumble











My husband Paul loves stewed Rhubarb, so I decided to adapt the traditional Apple crumble recipe to Rhubarb crumble.  He loves it and so does my son in law Adam.  Adam wonders why I hid the recipe from him for so long!!

Note from Aileen

My mother used to make a version of this and so do I. She used to trick us when we were kids & didn’t like the taste of rhubarb. Gram would stew some strawberries with the rhubarb, the rhubarb would take on the taste of the strawberries and we would happily eat the crumble!

Grannie’s Apple Crumble

Source & History

This is my grandmother’s (mother’s mother) recipe. It has been a favourite dessert in my house for years (up there with Gram’s Baked Fudge Pudding).


  • In my family, where fruit is less popular than crumble, we usually double the quantities for the crumble
  • I often use canned pie apple filling (the huge can in the tinned fruit section of the supermarket) instead of the fresh fruit
  • I sprinkle the fruit with a little brown sugar & cinnamon
  • You can use any fruit: apricots, peaches, rhubarb & strawberries
