21*52 Mango-Rhubarb-Crumble

Summer temperatures are nowhere near and it is very unfriendly outside.
So let's bring summer to our plates.  And comfort food.

Are you in? That's what I thought.

Summer + comfort food = Mango-Rhubarb-Crumble.


4 stalks rhubarb
1 mango
4 teaspoons sugar

4 tablespoons raw sugar
100 g (3/4 cup) flour
50 g (1/2 cup) rolled oats
75 g (1/3 cup) butter, cold
  • Preheat oven to 200°C (390°F). 
  • Wash rhubarb and cut it into slice. Peel mango and cut into small pieces. Put both fruit into a baking dish and sprinkle with 4 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Knead the remaining ingredients with your hand until crumbly. Crumble over fruit. 
  • Bake for about 35 minutes. Enjoy while still warm for comforting purposes (or cold for summer feeling).
My modifications:
I browsed through a lot of crumble recipes and this is what I combined of them so the whole recipe is my modification.

The taste:
So comforting and yet summery. I love it and could eat it every day. Honestly.
Next time, I wouldn't use the mango though. I felt sorry for it because the rhubarb was so dominant that you didn't even taste the mango unless that was all you had on your spoon. I feel like it's better enjoyed by itself. But rhubarb-strawberry is a famous combo. Or maybe rhubarb-apple? Or just rhubarb.

How do you comfort yourself right now (especially if you live somewhere where the temperatures are not quite measuring up to the season)?
