Recipe; Rhubarb crumble

The sweet & tart filling, with crunchy crumble accompanied by dollops of thick custard make rhubarb crumble a great british desert.

The humble crumble

We all have a bit of a sweet tooth in Founde household. Generally though, after we’ve had a meal we’re all to full to want to eat pudding. Its normally something we have well after the meal.

As you’ve probably grasped from my other recipes, my family is quite hard to please when it comes to food. They’re not very adventurous when it comes to food. Apple crumbles, they’ll eat all day long, apple pie, jam roly-poly etc nothing very out of the ordinary.

So I thought I’d chance my arm at Rhubarb Crumble. If they don’t like it, I’d definitely eat. I love Rhubarb Crumble! Steaming hot sweet and tart Rhubarb, Crunchy topping, and lashings of Custard. Yum!
