Rhubarb Crumble

We've reworked the classic rhubarb crumble to make it into a more sophisticated dessert.


Serves 2

300g rhubarb
50g sugar
2 star anise
vanilla, to taste
few knobs of butter
powdered sugar

200g flour
125g butter
110g demarara sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat an oven to 200C. Wash the rhubarb and cut diagonally into 2 cm pieces.

Place on a roasting tray with the sugar, vanilla, star anise and butter. Roast for about 10-15 minutes until tender but not breaking up. Set aside to cool.

To make the crumble, place the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs. Line a baking tray with baking paper and sprinkle some of the crumble mixture in a ring mould to form discs. Repeat until the tray is full.

Bake them in the oven for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool.

To assemble, spoon some of the roasted rhubarb on to a serving dish. Top with the crumble disc, dust with icing sugar and serve.


voor 2 personen

300g rabarber
50g suiker
2 steranijs
vanille, naar smaak
paar klontjes boter
powdered sugar

200g bloem
125g boter
110g rietsuiker
1/4 theelepel zout

Verwarm een oven op 200C. Spoel de rabarber af en snijd schuin in 2 cm stukjes.

Doe de rabarber een ovenschaal met de suiker, vanille, steranijs en boter. Rooster ongeveer 10-15 minutes totdat de rabarber zacht is maat niet uit elkaar valt. Zet opzij om af te koelen.

Maak de crumble; doe de bloem, suiker en zout in een kom. Wrijf de boter met je vingers erdoorheen totdat de mengsel als broodkruim eruit ziet. Bedek een ovenschaal met bakpapier en maak rondjes van de crumble mengsel met een ronde uitsteker. Herhaal totdat de schaal vol is.

Bak in de oven ongeveer 10-12 minuten of tot goudbruin. Laat afkoelen.

Om de crumble in elkaar te zetten, lepel de geroosterde rabarber op een bord. Let een rondje van de crumble erbovenop. Bestrooi met poedersuiker en serveer.


Blackberries from the oven

150 g black berries
125 g mascarpone
2 eggs
1 vanilla pod
30 g flaked almonds
1 small bunch mint
castor sugar
butter, for greasing the dish

Preheat the oven to 220° C. In a bowl, mix together the 2 egg yolks with the mascarpone, seeds from the scraped vanilla pod and about 1-2 tablespoons sugar, or to your taste.

Grease an oven dish with butter. Scatter the base of the dish with the blackberries. Sprinkle the berries with sugar to taste, depending on how sour they are. Spoon over the mascarpone-egg mixture and scatter with the flaked almonds.

Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until the mascarpone is lightly coloured and set.

Finely chop the mint and sprinkle over the dish as it comes out of the oven.
