  3. Cut the rhubarb up and place on the tray. Sprinkle with water and add a little bit of orange zest and juice. Then pop in the oven and roast it in the over for about 10-12 minutes.
  4. Continue mixing the cake mix, then spoon into the tin and level off, arrange the sliced rhubarb over the top of the sponge mix.
  5. Mix the crumble mix together in a bowl, using your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs and then sprinkle it over the top of the rhubarb.
