2 tablespoons caster sugar

1 teaspoon orange rind, finely grated

2 tablespoons orange juice

1 cup self-raising flour

2/3 cup brown sugar

80g butter, chilled, chopped

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease a 1.5-litre (6-cup-capacity) ovenproof dish.

Step 2

Combine rhubarb, apple, caster sugar, orange rind and juice in prepared dish. Bake, covered, stirring once, for 30 minutes or until fruit is just tender. Remove from oven.

Step 3

Meanwhile, combine flour and brown sugar in a large bowl. Add butter. Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle over rhubarb and apple mixture.

Step 4

Bake, uncovered, for 25 to 30 minutes or until crumble is golden brown. Serve with thickened cream.
