Crumb-Topped Rhubarb Recipe

Crumb-Topped Rhubarb Recipe

Almost every home in our part of the country has a rhubarb patch, so we're always on the lookout for new rhubarb recipes. I've been making this particular recipe for a long time - I discovered it in a cookbook I received when my husband and I were married in 1950. It's one of my favorites.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • TOPPING:
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking or rolled oats
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine rhubarb, flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Spoon into a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish; set aside.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and oats. Cut in butter until crumbly; sprinkle over rhubarb mixture. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
