- 4 cup uncooked cut up rhubarb
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 tbsp corn starch/cornflour

Many cooks use cold butter and rub the fat into the dry ingredients. It is also common not to have a crumble layer on the bottom, just on top of the rhubarb. Finally the cornstarch sauce is frequently omitted. Raw rhubarb and sugar alone are used. The rhubarb juice acts as a sufficient sauce.
