Skillet Rhubarb Crunch

With a crunch layer on both the top and bottom and a sweet and saucy rhubarb layer in between – it’s rhubarb perfection!

I finally got my hands on some garden fresh rhubarb this week. Thanks Dad! I know some of you were enjoying garden-fresh rhubarb a while ago, but things come a little slower in these parts. Right now here, the leaves are just fully out and we are in full-on black fly season. It’s one of nature’s cruel twists, since we wait through a long winter just for nice weather and once it comes, so do the black flies to drive us back inside.

Black flies are just about the worst bugs ever. They come in droves and swarm around your head and get in your hair. They can also take a huge chunk out of you for such a little bug. I happen to have a black fly bite allergy (where I swell up in all sorts of unpleasant ways), so I’m especially careful this time of year. Fortunately, their life span is short. All we need is a bit of hot weather to kill them off and since we’re enjoying a run of 25° C. days (80° F.), I’m hopeful their visit this year will be short!

So since I can’t spend too much time outside, I have lots of time for baking still. I think is the quintessential rhubarb dish. It one-ups a crisp with a crunchy layer on both the bottom and the top. In between, fresh chopped rhubarb is topped with a thickened sugar syrup, that cooks up in to just the right amount of sweetness. I haven’t made this dish with frozen rhubarb, but my experience says it should work just fine.

If you can only make one rhubarb dish, I suggest this one!
