Rhubarb Butter Crunch

Last weekend our neighbors called to offer us some of their rhubarb, if we wanted it.  I gladly accepted and she told me to stop by anytime and get some.  With different activities, me being sick a couple days and everything else going on we just made it over there last night.  Ryan told me, "Go ahead and get some, but I'm not eatin' it."

I found a recipe online, tweeked it a little and came up with this yummy dish...Rhubarb Butter Crunch.

(Sorry, I tried a couple different things, but the picture still wanted to flip this way.)

The recipe called for the rhubarb to be diced.  I thought I'd use my handy dandy chopper thingy.  Not the answer.  That just mooshed it up and made a mess.  So, I diced it by hand.

By the way, Ryan just came in and saw me eating it and going on about how good it was....

This is serving #3 for him!  Guess it's not so bad after all--I swear he's worse than the kids sometimes! ;)

Here's the recipe:

Rhubarb Butter Crunch

4C. Rhubarb, diced
1 C. Sugar (heaping)
3 Tbsp. Flour
1 C. Brown Sugar
3/4 C. Rolled Oats
1 1/2 C. Flour
1 C. Butter

Combine rhubarb, sugar and 3 Tbsp. flour and place in greased 9x13 baking dish.  Combine brown sugar, oats and 1 1/2 C. flour, cut in butter, and sprinkle over rhubarb.  Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes.


  1. yummy, yummy....I just got some rhubarb plants from one of my great aunts when I was back in NE MO a few weeks ago. So when they get ready to use I an gonna have to try this!
    On a side plants actually came from some relations in Iowa.

  2. I've heard of strawberry Rhubarb pie but never really knew what rhubarb was. Interesting... If I ever come up with some I might just have to try this!

  3. Sounds like a great recipe. I'll have to give it a try. It would be perfect for the Memorial Day weekend.

  4. Yum! I need a rhubarb plant, they're so pretty. I love ruhubarb, but I think I'm the only one. Perhaps I can sneak it into stuff. :-) Thanks for visiting my blog! Be sure to stop by again.

  5. Oh yes, forgot to say our camera is a Pentax K-X. This is my first blog post with pics from it, we just got it. Before that we had a Fujifilm Finepix that I thought was decent until we got this one, haha! But actually it was a pretty good point and shoot. :-)

  6. YEAH!! I needed a good tried out recipe for rhubarb, seems this last years snowfall record was just what my rhubarb wanted. It is as large as the car right now and it hasn't warmed up enough here yet to say things have taken off! It even seeded out already!! I will have to give your recipe a try and my coworkers will Thank You!!

  7. I don't think I have ever eaten rhubarb. Now that I think of it, I don't think I've ever seen rhubarb! lol.

  8. Hey I just got some rhubarb yesterday from a lady at church!! Totally going to try this!
