This rhubarb and apple crumble is sweet, tart, and very satisfying.

This twist on a classic rhubarb crumble (opens in new tab) is the ultimate British pudding as you can use home-grown rhubarb, at its best in the late springtime, and a collection of apples. And this rhubarb and apple crumble is so easy to make, so it's perfect if you need to whip something up in a bit of a hurry. It primarily uses store cupboard ingredients along with butter and fresh fruit. While you can serve it on its own for a simple flavour, we recommend pairing it with hot custard or with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.


  • 600g (1lb 5oz) rhubarb, sliced into 5cm (2in) lengths
  • 450g (1lb) Bramley apples, cored, peeled and cut into thick wedges
  • 150g (5oz) golden caster sugar
  • 25g (1oz) butter, cubed
  • 50g (2oz) plain flour
  • 100g (4oz) luxury muesli
  • 50g (2oz) light muscovado sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon




  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F, gas mark 7). To make the apple crumble, place the rhubarb, apples and caster sugar in a large roasting tin and roast for 20 mins until softened and lightly charred.
  2. Place the butter and flour in a food processor and whizz until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Spoon the cooked fruit into a baking dish and scatter over the crumble mixture. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden. Delicious served with crème fraîche.
