  • Ingredients for filling:
  • 450g rhubarb or other fruit
  • 60g heather honey
  • 3 or 4 tablespoons of water
  • A squeeze of lemon
  • Ingredients for the Crumble:
  • 60g plain flour
  • 25g coarse oatmeal (the fresher the better)
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 60g butter or margarine


    1. Cook the fruit with the honey, water and lemon juice until it is soft but not mushy. Place in a deep pie dish.
    2. Sift the flour, then mix together the ingredients for the crumble in the order given above. Warm the butter or margarine until it is soft (but not oily) before adding in. Once the crumble has been well mixed, sprinkle evenly over the fruit.
    3. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 400F/200C/gas mark 6 for 20 minutes in the hottest part of the oven or until the crumble is brown and crunchy.

Whilst I did double the topping mix the 2nd time I made it, you could get away with the amounts here if you used a deep and smallish diameter pie dish. The topping makes little cluster type crunchy topping and the whole thing is rather lovely and very easy to make. I found the topping a bit too sweet and when making double would suggest 100 to 110g of brown sugar or even less.

This is a cake mix not a crumble topping, added to which it would never cover that much fruit!! Total carp
