  • 5 stalks rhubarb
  • 3 large (4 medium) apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks

Crumble Mixture
  • ⅓ cup self-raising flour
  • ¼ cup plain, all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 100 grams (7 tablespoons) cold butter, cubed

  2. Grease an ovenproof dish and add the rhubarb, caster sugar and apple, plus 2 tablespoons water. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes until fruit is tender.
  3. While the apples and rhubarb are baking, make the crumble topping.
  4. In a large bowl sift the flour and add the butter.
