Ginger Cardamom Rhubarb Recipe. Crisp is delightfully spiced and topped with a buttery oatmeal crust. Sweetened with sugar and molasses for added flavour.


  • 5 cups chopped rhubarb
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp. cardamom
  • 2 Tbsp. flour


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ cup butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. In a medium bowl combine rhubarb with sugar, molasses, spices and flour. Toss to coat and scrape into a 9” by 9” (or thereabouts) baking dish.
  3. In another bowl combine the flour, oats, sugar and ginger.
  4. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or rub with your fingers, until the mixture forms pea-sized chunks.
  5. Sprinkle over rhubarb mixture and bake for 35-40 minutes, until fruit is bubbling and topping is starting to brown.
  6. Serve with a drizzle of fresh cream.
