Rhubarb crumble tart is a really easy dessert, that uses up extra seasonal rhubarb you might have knocking about, plus you can use ready-made shortcrust pastry, to save some extra time. Make this rhubarb crumble tart in under an hour for a really lovely dinner party dessert, or a pudding you can enjoy at a picnic, or to finish off a barbeque. Share with friends and family and serve it whichever way you prefer - with cream, ice cream or even custard! It's a combination of two types of dessert - a tart and a crumble, and they come together perfectly! You really will find yourself making it time and time again.
