1.Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Lightly grease a medium ovenproof dish.
2.In a medium saucepan, combine apple and water. Bring to boil on high. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer, covered, 4-5 minutes, until almost tender.
3.Add rhubarb and sugar. Simmer, stirring, 2-3 minutes, or until rhubarb is just tender. Drain excess liquid. Spoon mixture into prepared dish.
4.To make crumble: Sift flour into a medium bowl. Rub in butter using fingertips until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir remaining crumble ingredients through. Sprinkle evenly over fruit.
5.Bake 25-30 minutes, until golden and bubbly. Serve warm with cream or ice-cream.

Tips: Store any leftover rhubarb in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you prefer a crunchier crumble, add 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts to the crumble mix.
