Recipes like this are not as popular as the classics because they're difficult to
categorise. The simple rhubarb crumble is my favourite pudding. It has a
strong nostalgia for me because my granddad used to make it. Grandma
would say he'd made one specially for me, but there were plenty of us on a
sunday afternoon eating it. I like to share.
This recipe however results in a pie and it's also a crumble, with custard
inside rather than on top. S is away until the weekend so this time
unfortunately (for her) I didn't share and I gained a pound in the
process. Trust me though, that's a good thing; I wouldn't mind a few
extra pounds and it was very delicious.
Here's the link for the recipe because I'm not going to pretend it's my own.
I would recommend however the largest oats you can find to mix in the
crumble topping and my big pastry secret, salted butter. Yes you read
correctly. It's only very unhealthy if you eat the whole cake in three
days, but I'll be ok. It makes tastier pastry.
