This versatile dessert is great served plain for breakfast, or as an after-dinner treat with ice cream. Either way, the flavor is terrific and seconds are tempting!


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, oats, 1 cup brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and butter. Pat about half of mixture onto the bottom of a greased 9-in. square baking pan. In a saucepan, combine cornstarch and remaining brown sugar; stir in water. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened and clear. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Add rhubarb and toss until coated. Spoon over crust; sprinkle with reserved flour mixture. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until bubbly.
