Mango and Rhubarb Crumble

Mango and Rhubarb Crumble

When I was younger I did not care for mangoes but I recently discovered that I like them... a lot. I have really been enjoying the mangoes lately, especially the mango crumble that I made a while ago. It was so good that I wanted to make it again. I had also been thinking about a strawberry and rhubarb crumble. After thinking for a while I decided to try combining mangoes and rhubarb in a mango and rhubarb crumble. I figured that the sweet mangoes would go well with the tart rhubarb. I went with a pretty basic recipe and added some grated ginger and coconut to make it a bit more exotic. The mango and rhubarb crisp turned out really well! The sweet mango and tart rhubarb and the hint of coconut was a really tasty flavour combination. Of course melting vanilla ice went really well with it!

Ingredients:
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 cups mango (diced)
2 cups rhubarb (cut into 1 inch pieces)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon ginger (grated)
2/3 cup flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup coconut (unsweetened)
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter (melted)

Directions:
1. Mix the sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl.
2. Add the mango, rhubarb, lemon juice and ginger and toss to coat.
3. Mix the flour, rolled oats, coconut, brown sugar and butter in a large bowl.
4. Place the mango and rhubarb mixture into an 8x8 inch baking dish and pour the topping on.
5. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until it is bubbling and the top is golden brown, about 45 minutes.

I still have yet to try rhubarb. I really need to address that situation. This looks like an awesome place to start!

Steph said...

wow kevin! how do you always come up with such amazing flavour combinations. I also love mangoes, so much that I have one everyday! I've never tried rhubarb though, I have no idea what it tastes like.

Manggy said...

Like vicarious foodie I have a currently unremediable rhubarb situation, but I will say that I am an incurable mango fan :) Looks great!

Dee said...

I keep seeing rhubarb everywhere, but they're so expensive here :( I'll just quietly drool in my little corner in Malaysia then *sigh*

Mango I can do. I'm taking a peek at your mango & macadamia nut crumble the minute I'm done.
Thanks for another amazing recipe :)

Bridgett said...

That sounds like a great, sweet combination. I like the idea of adding coconut and ginger as well. I have yet to try rhubarb though but I love mangoes so maybe I should start with having them together such as this!

noble pig said...

What a great combination of flavors and color too! I would never think of mango in a crumble but why the heck not!

Emiline said...

I see where you're going with this...and I like it. I like mango and rhubarb.

I always have trouble finding good mangoes here. They're always over ripe.

Jeena said...

Kevin, I would be so impressed if I was served this up for a pudding. It looks really rustic and the flavours sound wonderful. I love the ice cream melting slightly onto the crumble yum!

I was looking through your list of yummy mango desserts, but this one just popped out at me. I've been waiting for strawberry season here to make strawberry/rhubarb desserts, but you've given me a new idea.
thanks,
Michelle

Thanks for the recipe! I made this today using strawberries instead of rhubarb. It was beautiful. I substituted dairy free margarine for the butter and it came out great. Thanks again!
Here is my blog entry about it:

Hi Kevin,
Do you think using tart apples instead of rhubarb would work?
Thanks~

Kevin said...

Lisa: An apple and mango crumble sounds good. Cranberries are also in season and I think they would work wonderfully as well!
