Traditional British Rhubarb and Ginger Crumble Recipe

Do you enjoy making crumbles? This is one of my all time favourites.


4oz or 112gm sifted self raising flour

2oz or 56gm butter

1.5 oz or 42gm caster sugar

4 sticks red ripe rhubarb

1 x teaspoon ground ginger

2 tablespoons water


Using a knife, cut the butter into small chunks in a mixing bowl. Add sifted flour and knead until breadcrumb consistency. Add sugar and stir until you obtain a crumble like texture.

In a saucepan put 2 tablespoons water, add rhubarb which has been cut up into one inch or 25 mm squares. Place ginger on top and lightly simmer until rhubarb starts to soften.

Pour into a Pyrex dish and place crumble mixture on top. Bake in a pre heated oven gas mark 5, electric 375f or 190c or fan 170oc for approximately thirty five minutes.

Serve with home made custard and double cream. FABULOUS!!

Wish mum was here to make this, my favourite pudding! I cannot match hers!
