2/3 cup (150 ml) white sugar
1/4 cup (60 ml) flour
1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cinnamon
1 tsp (5 ml) orange rind, grated (optional but really spikes the flavour!)

1/4 cup (60 ml) brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup (75 ml) rolled oats

  1. In a large bowl toss the first six ingredients together. Spoon into a greased 8” square pan. Cover with foil and bake at 375 F for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile blend the next four topping ingredients together.
  3. Remove foil from rhubarb, spoon topping over the rhubarb mixture, and bake uncovered for another 20 minutes or until the topping is golden and the rhubarb is bubbling.
  4. Serve warm with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla Greek yogurt.
  5. Enjoy!
