    To make crumble, combine flour, oats, cinnamon and orange rind in a large mixing bowl. Rub in butter with fingertips, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in extra demerara sugar, reserving 1 tablespoon.

    Sprinkle crumble over rhubarb, then top with remaining sugar. Bake for 50-60 minutes until top is crisp and golden, and juices are bubbling. Stand for 10 minutes, then serve with cream.


When grating orange rind, make sure you don't include any white pith as it tastes bitter.
