This is probably a rather healthy desert – I mean, it’s pretty much muesli disguised as pudding! (Although, probably anything could disguise itself as pudding if it sprinkled a bit of sugar on itself). With lots of fruit, seeds, and oats, it does provide a chunk of nutrition. And sugar… for energy…? The trick with crumbles is to use lots of apple; they’re nice and sweet, cheap, and bulky, so provide a good base to full out the crumble, and use smaller/more expensive tasty fruits for the flavour.
2 branches Rhubarb
3 Plums (or another branch of Rhubarb)
1 Tblsp Sugar
3/4 C Flour
1/4 C Margarine
1/2 C Oats
1/4 C Brown Sugar
2 Tblsp Pumpkin Seeds
2 Tblsp Sunflower Seeds
A pinch of cinnamon
Peel the apples, then slice them up as well as the rhubarb and plums. Chuck them in a pot, sprinkle with the sugar and cover with some water. Bring to the boil, and let it do so until the rhubarb is nice and soft.
While you’re waiting for the fruit, in a food processor (or with your fingers) blend together the flour and marg to form crumbs. Then blend in the oats, brown sugar, seeds, and cinnamon.
Drain the fruit, layer onto a dish, then sprinkle the crumbs on top. Bake at 200ºC until it starts to brown on top.
