Rhubarb, Blueberry & Apple Crumble
I love crumble of any kind really but this one has to be my fave at the moment.
I think its the colour is so in your face & the taste is pretty good too :)
It's really easy to make & you can make them ahead of time & pop them in the fridge.
I bunch of Rhubarb washed with the leaves removed cut into 2cm pieces
2 apples (I used Granny Smiths but any kind will do)
1/2 punnet of Blueberries
2 tablespoons of sugar
2 tablespoons of water.
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
100gm plain flour
Oven 200 c
Remove leaves from rhubarb & wash stems, then cut into 2cm pieces.
Peel, core & chop apples into chunks.
Put the rhubarb, apples, sugar & water into heavy based pot with the lid on & cooked over a medium heat for 5min, then stir, cook for a few more minutes until the apple is soft the rhubarb will have cooked to a soft puree. Remove from the heat.
While the fruit is cooking, crumble butter into the flour with your fingers to making small pea sized pieces then mix sugar, cinnamon & baking powder with butter & flour crumble.
Spoon poached fruit into 6 cup sized oven proof bowls or 1 large oven proof dish scatter blueberries over the top & sprinkle crumble over it all then bake until golden ( small bowls approx 15min, large dish approx 30min).
Serve with cream or ice-cream or both.
