Apple & Rhubarb Crumble

Crumble is an effortless dessert that looks like it takes a lot of effort. I won’t tell if you don’t! Use whatever spices you like in the filling. Cardamom is amazing with both apple and rhubarb, so give it a try if you have it.

What you need for the filling:

  • 2 cups rhubarb
    2 cups apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp spices…I like ground cardamom but you can use cinnamon or fresh thyme
  • squeeze of lemon juice

What you need for the crumble topping:

  • 1 ½  cups oatmeal
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold water

Mix filling ingredients directly in your 8 inch baking dish, make sure everything is coated with the sugar and spices. Then make the crumble. With your hands mix oatmeal, butter, sugar and salt until the mixture becomes sandlike. Add the cold water and mix until large chunks form. Sprinkle crumble on top of fruit filling.

Bake at 400 F for roughly 45-55 minutes, or until top is golden and filling is bubbly. Let cool slightly before serving.
