This is something I’ve been baking for YEARS! Here’s my gluten free apple and rhubarb crumble recipe – it’s also vegan and dairy free too.
Mark asked me to make this for him recently for a bit of a random reason that I’ll get into in a mo 😂 But trust me, if Mark likes it, you’ll definitely like my gluten free apple and rhubarb crumble recipe too!
Basically, Mark is growing both rhubarb AND Bramley apples in the garden this year.
(yes, even though we have a tiny garden, it is possible! He has a dwarf Bramley apple tree in a pot and apparently it can grow full-sized apples!!)
But sadly… those Bramleys aren’t gonna be ready any time soon – they’re currently tiny! Plus, his rhubarb has only been in the ground for a year, so it’s not really thick enough for a crumble…
So all in all, a bit of a disaster as far as making a crumble goes 😂
So out of pure impatience, Mark just went and bought Bramley apple and rhubarb from the supermarket 🤣 I mean, I guess it’s quicker, right?!
Hopefully next year, you’ll see a photo of an apple and rhubarb crumble that was totally home grown… but just not yet.
(Mark might need to milk a few dairy free cows for his custard too!)
But in trying to grow our own ingredients for fun, we did learn that the pink colour in rhubarb isn’t an indicator of ripeness or sweetness.
Some varieties of rhubarb are more pink than others, so the colour basically just indicates what type of rhubarb it is. There’s a fun fact for you!
And the result?
Well, if you love the combo of caramelised apples and cinnamon with some lovely sharp rhubarb thrown in – oh and crispy, crunchy, buttery crumble on top, then you’re defo in the right place!
Just serve it up with custard and some ice cream (vegan or dairy free if you need them to be) and the job’s a good’un.
I was saying this earlier, but this really is a dessert that you just can’t mess up! There’s no worrying if it’ll set or not, whether it’ll rise – will it fall apart when I remove it from the baking tin?
Nope, it’s just stress free baking as its finest!
Of course, if you have eyes, you’ll be able to note that I made my crumble in a skillet.
If you don’t have one, it’s not a big deal – I just used one because I love how it looks in photos! You can happily use a regular large-sized, oven-proof baking dish of any size or shape instead.
