Pudding & Cake Serves 4 55 min
This is the American version of the rhubarb crumble and it's just as delicious as the home-grown classic. Serve it with oodles of cream or custard, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  • 125g flour
  • 75g rolled oats
  • 100g butter, melted
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 600g rhubarb, sliced into 1cm pieces
  • 200g caster sugar
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 100ml water
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • few drops vanilla essence
