Notes

  • Rhubarb is very tart in flavor.  If you like a really sweet rhubarb dessert (like my Dad), increase the amount of sugar in the bottom layer up to 1 and 1/4 cups. If you like a bit of tartness, then keep it at 3/4 cups. 
  • Our particular variety of rhubarb plant has very green stalks.  Your crumble may be more red in color if yours is a different variety.  They are both tasty.
  • If you don't have a 2 quart baking dish, use an 8 x 8 inch or 9 x 9 inch dish instead. 
  • Substitute butter for margarine if desired in this easy rhubarb cobbler. 
  • If you aren't a fan or nutmeg, leave it out or replace with ground cinnamon.
