Maple Lemon Rhubarb Crumble

with ACE Artisan Granola

Rhubarb Crumble

This is a simple and rustic recipe that is sure to bring warmth to your table. If fresh rhubarb is out of season, frozen works just as well.

Serves: 6-8

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup (180 mL) white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (240 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (240 mL) ACE Bakery Granola
  • ½ cup (120 mL) melted butter
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) freshly grated nutmeg
  • 4 cups (1 L) sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1 cup (240 mL) maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) cornstarch
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ cup (120 mL) water
  • 1 vanilla bean with seeds scraped

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine white sugar, flour, ACE Bakery Granola, melted butter and nutmeg, and mix until it has a crumbly consistency.
  2. Press half of the granola mixture into a buttered 8-inch (20.5-cm) round baking dish that is 7 inches (17.5 cm) deep. Alternatively, you can use a 9- x 12-inch (22.8- x 30.5-cm) pan that is at least 3 inches (7.6 cm) deep. Top with the sliced rhubarb and lemon zest.
  3. In a small pot, combine the maple syrup, cornstarch, lemon juice, zest, water and vanilla bean seeds, including the shells. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until the cornstarch is completely dissolved (about 4 to 5 minutes), then remove vanilla bean and pour over rhubarb in the dish.
  4. Top the rhubarb in the dish with the remaining granola mixture and bake at 325°F (160°C) for 45 minutes for fresh rhubarb, and up to 1 hour and 15 minutes for frozen, or until the rhubarb mixture is thick and bubbling.
