What a perfect springtime dessert! It's filled with color and fresh fruit flavor the whole family will savor. I sometimes grate about a tablespoonful of fresh orange or lemon zest and add to the crumb mixture for extra flavor. —Sharon Hadinger, Dublin, Ohio

"All in all good, but would decrease brown sugar next time. A little too sweet for my taste."

"This was great. I am not accustomed to the rhubarb, so I am not sure I would add it in the future. But all in all it was great."
