    Was looking for an easy but interesting crumble, googled and this one came up. Loved the addition of rolled oats and hazelnuts. Will definitely be using this recipe (and this site) again and again.  -  25 May 2013

    As a newbie baker, I rely heavily on recipes being accurate, and this one didn't seem to be. The instruction for the rhubarb said to "combine with the sugar..." so I added both lots of sugar, not realising that then dark sugar had to go into the crumble mix. My crumble mix was therefore depleted and barely covered the rhubarb - it looked like nearly double the quantity of crumble would be needed.  -  28 Mar 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
