          • 75g caster sugar
          • 75g plain flour

          • 50g sugar
          • 75g butter
          • Flaked almonds
          Slice the rhubarb and mix with the caster sugar in a baking dish. Top with the crumble made by mixing the flour, ground almonds sugar and butter. Scatter the top with flaked almonds and bake for 40 minutes in a medium oven until golden.
