Very good if you make the changes suggested in the reviews. I’m rating this low because if you make it as is there is not nearly enough fruit and the topping becomes like a hard crust because of too much butter. So, I made the same changes everyone else recommended: DOUBLE THE FRUIT to 6 cups (I used about 4 cups rhubarb and 2 cups strawberries). For the topping I added 1 tsp SALT as well as ¼ tsp ALLSPICE. And definitely use only ½ CUP BUTTER if you want the crumbly topping shown in the picture. I made it both ways so I feel confident with these changes. I did not increase the sugar when I added more fruit and it was sweet enough (rhubarb should have a slight sour). I made this ahead so I could serve a warm desert and it was great. I hade the fruit mixture refrigerated in the baking dish and I just kept the topping separate until it was time to put in the oven. I baked it as directed before I wanted to serve it and topped with vanilla ice cream while it was still warm, yum. I had many requests for the recipe and many rave reviews. Hope this helps – happy baking!

I made several changes based on other reviews. I increased the rhubarb to 6C and added an extra tablespoon of flour to the fruit to thicken it a bit better. I also cut the butter to 3/4C and added a bit of salt and cinnamon to the topping. Otherwise I left the recipe the same. It turned out pretty good with these changes...a good proportion of fruit to topping and a nice combination of sweetness and tartness. The low rating is because the recipe needed to be changed in the first place..."as is" this recipe wouldn't have enough fruit and 1C of butter seemed excessive. In my opinion if a recipe has to be altered this much then it is not deserving of such a high rating.


I altered this one. I increased rhubarb to 6 cups, the sugar by half a cup and then added a pint of strawberries and a peach, which really adds to the overall flavor. Everyone went nuts over this one. Our house came with an 80 year old rhubarb plant, this was the first recipie I tried for it. Will be making this one, again!
