Royal Rhubarb Crumble Recipe
The Coronation of King Charles III will take place on Saturday 6th May at Westminster Abbey, and will see His Majesty crowned alongside The Queen Consort.
As the nation prepares to celebrate this significant event in British history with friends, family and communities planning street parties, and lunches, why not try our very special recipe for a delicious coronation pudding?
Forget the Coronation Quiche, try our Royal Rhubarb Crumble!
- 500g of fresh rhubarb (tastes even better when picked from your garden!)
- A generous splash of rhubarb gin
- 100g of plain flour
- 100g of ground nuts or oats
- 100g demerara sugar or golden caster sugar
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
Step 2: Chop rhubarb into chunks (thumb length) and place into a large saucepan with a splash of rhubarb gin and a sprinkle of sugar!
Step 3: Cover and simmer on a very low heat for 15 mins.
Step 4: Once soft, pour the rhubarb into a medium size baking dish.
Step 5: To make the crumble topping, mix together the flour, nuts/oats, sugar and butter by hand. You do not have to make the mixture smooth - the clusters add to the crumbly texture!
Step 6: Sprinkle the topping over the fruit in your baking dish ensuring an even coating.
Step 7: Bake in the oven for approx 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
Step 8: Serve with a scoop of ice-cream or custard and a rhubarb gin & tonic - enjoy!
