  • 8 inch cast iron skillet
  • Mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Mixing spoon or fork
  • Cheese grater


  • 4 cups Fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 2/3 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup Uncooked oats
  • 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup Cold butter, divided


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F with the cast iron skillet inside.
  • Roughly chop the rhubarb into small pieces.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, oats, and cinnamon.
  • Using a cheese grater, grate 1/2 cup of butter into the bowl. Mix well until crumbly.
  • Once the oven and skillet are heated, carefully remove the skillet from the oven. Place 1/4 cup of butter into the skillet and allow to melt.
  • Add the rhubarb to the skillet and spread evenly along the bottom. Drizzle the honey all over the rhubarb pieces. No need to mix.
  • Sprinkle the topping evenly all over the rhubarb pieces. Place a couple of pads of butter on the top, if desired, for extra shine.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream on top, if desired.
