Makes

12 servings (2-1/2 cups sauce)

When I met my English husband and served him just the crumble, he said it was fantastic but really needed a custard sauce over it. We found a terrific sauce recipe from England, and now the pair is perfect together. I wouldn't serve it any other way. —Amy Freeman, Cave Creek, Arizona

Ingredients

  • 8 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • CUSTARD SAUCE:
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, combine rhubarb and 3/4 cup sugar. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the rhubarb is tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. In a bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, oats and remaining sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly; sprinkle over rhubarb. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, whisk the egg yolks and sugar; stir in cream. Cook and stir over low heat until a thermometer reads 160° and mixture thickens, 15-20 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Serve warm over rhubarb crumble.
Editor's Note
If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
