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!!
