This is based on an Erdbeer-Biskuit-Kuchen recipe from a German fruit flan cookbook. I was given the book during a recent trip to Germany by our hosts during ‘Kaffee und Kuchen’ (traditional coffee and cake social just after lunch).
Rhubarb is brilliant – it’s got a silly name, it’s vegetable that tastes like fruit, and its pink! My ‘deconstructed’ crumble keeps the shape and the beautiful colour of the rhubarb and transforms a homely pud into a something special.
