Apple-Rhubarb Crunch

Tart rhubarb and apples, sweetened and spiced and topped with oatmeal crunch, make an easy dessert.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
  • 2 cups diced rhubarb
  • 2 cups sliced apples
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Mix together flour, oats, brown sugar, spices, and melted butter. Press half of the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch square baking pan. Arrange the rhubarb and apples evenly on top. Cook the white sugar, water, cornstarch, and vanilla until thick; pour over the rhubarb and apples. Sprinkle the remaining oatmeal mixture on top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

    I made this recipe and put it in individual ramkins instead of a baking pan. I thought it made a better presentation that way. Excellent recipe.

    I use this recipe often and have had professional chefs ask for this recipe. I also use other fruits and berries in place of the apples. It is easy and delicious.

    Five long-time rhubarb cobbler connoisseurs tried this and all pronounced it excellent. I made it exactly as in the recipe, except used brown sugar instead of white. It was quick and easy.
