Rhubarb Apple Berry Crumble: A perfect recipe for summer!

Rhubarb apple berry crumble recipeWhen I think of apple crumble, I usually think of chilly autumn days and the warm flavour of cinnamon. But now that rhubarb is in season I was thinking of ways I could use this delicious veg(?). I immediately thought of the great combination of apple and rhubarb and decided to throw the two together with some berries into a crumble.

Now, I have seen a lot of recipes with rhubarb and strawberry, but I don’t like strawberry (I know, I’m weird right?). But I do like raspberry. My mom makes the best rhubarb compote and I thought I’d try to use those flavours in my crumble. As it happens she uses raspberries and apple in it, as well as a little custard powder and cinnamon. I definitely love the combination of vanilla and rhubarb, which is why it had to come back in this recipe.Apple rhubarb blackberry raspberry crumble recipeRhubarb apple blackberry raspberry crumble recipe

The result is a delicious slightly tart crumble, perfect for summery nights. Maybe whip up some cream or grab a scoop of ice cream if you fancy it, but I think it’s great on its own.

Ingredients (enough for about a 25×35 cm baking dish):

For the filling:

3 to 4 large apples, cut into small pieces.

2 rhubarb stalks, cut into small pieces.

A handful of raspberries, cut into pieces (this time I also used some blackberries).

½ cup sugar

7 grams vanilla sugar

A teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the dough (if you want more crumble you can easily throw together some butter, flourand sugar, for a simple crunchy top):apple rhubarb raspberry blackberry crumble oatmeal recipe

1 ½ cups oats

1 cup butter (I used dairy free margarine)

1 cup flour

½ cup cane sugar

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

7 grams vanilla sugar


Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C.

Combine the fruits and the sugars in a bowl. Set aside in a cool place.

Combine the sugar, flour and oats. Mix together with the butter. Your dough will be like a firm cookie dough.apple raspberry blackberry rhubarb oatmeal crumble recipe

Grease your baking dish or line with baking paper.

Press enough dough into your baking dish until the bottom is completely covered.

Some of the juice of your fruit will have come out, depending on how long it has been left to stand while making the dough. Pour out the juice, which will make sure your crumble won’t be too wet and soggy.

Now spread your fruit on your layer of dough.

I always like to mix my fruit with the crumble and then spread a little more crumble on top. But if you want it just on top or just through the fruit, it’s up to you! Do that now. (I made a little more dough without oats to crumble on the top, just because I like my crunchy crumbles on top).

Then put that baby in the oven and wait patiently for about 40 minutes, until the top is slightly golden and crunchyRhubarb apple raspberry blackberry crumble recipe
