I halved this and it was still really good, but very juicy. If I make it again, I may try a different thickener, or just more flour, but the flavor was really, really good, and my three year old, who normally won't eat stuff with rhubarb, really liked it!
This was a delicious easy way to use my rhubarb. I will make it again. I used pecans which added a good flavor to this recipe.
I noted the comments and doubled the oatmeal topping and increased the flour in the fruit filling. The topping was perfect but with ten cups of fruit, the recipe needed more thickener to deal with the juice. I wonder if cornstarch would be a better choice.
Always great to find a nice recipe to use up my rhubarb. I decided to 1 1/2 crumble topping to help prevent soggy top and it worked out well for my tastes. No other changes. Will def make again.
