Ingredients

  • 1kg (2lb) fresh rhubarb
  • 125g (4oz) caster sugar
  • 2 pieces of stem ginger, chopped
  • 2 tbsp stem ginger syrup
  • whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, to serve
  • custard, to serve

Crumble

  • 250g (8oz) plain flour
  • 125g (4oz) butter, diced
  • 25g (1oz) caster sugar
  • 25g (1oz) demerara sugar

If you want to be a purist you can leave out the stem ginger and stem ginger syrup, but add an extra 25–50g (1–2 oz) caster sugar

Method

  1. Top and tail the rhubarb and remove the stringy skin. Cut the sticks into 2.5 cm (1 inch) lengths, put them in a large ovenproof dish and sprinkle with the caster sugar. Add the stem ginger and stem ginger syrup.
  2. To make the crumble, sift the flour into a bowl. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the caster sugar.
  3. Cover the rhubarb with the crumble and press it down lightly. Sprinkle the surface with the demerara sugar.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven, 190°C (375°F), Gas Mark 5, for 40 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot with custard.
