  • 2 tbsp flaked almond
  • mascarpone or crème fraîche, to serve


  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Place the rhubarb in a pan with the orange juice and 50g/2oz of the sugar. Heat gently to dissolve the sugar, then cover and cook for a few mins until the rhubarb is softened but still holding its shape, about 5 mins. Tip into a 1.5-litre gratin dish.

  2. Put the flour, orange zest and remaining sugar in a bowl, add the butter, then rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the milk to make a soft dough. Drop 8 spoonfuls of mixture over the rhubarb and scatter with the almonds. Bake for 25-30 mins until the topping is crisp and golden. Serve warm with mascarpone or crème fraîche.

The adults all enjoyed this however with the orange and rhubarb it was too tart for my children who refused to touch it!

We don't have self raising flour in Germany, I substituted it with 195 g wheat flour Type 405 and 5 g baking powder. I served it with whipped cream.

I'm a crumble girl so didn't impress me much but my guests loved it! Mine was green though and not the lovely pink featured here. Dead easy to make though.

Very easy to cook and got lots of compliments, my sort of recipe! The 'slump' was lovely and made a nice change from crumble.
