Does crumble need to be cooked?

How do you know when crumble is done?

The main reason your crumble topping isn’t crunchy is probably because you haven’t used Demerara sugar. Although, it could also be that you’ve got your topping ingredient quantities wrong: either too much or not enough flour and butter alongside the sugar. You’ve not used ingredients that add crunch.

When you are ready to bake simply spoon the crumble over the rhubarb, pop into the oven and bake as per the recipe card.
