Rhubarb and custard for me is a wonderful combination of flavours, it reminds me of my childhood. This recipe is a great opportunity to celebrate a great British ingredient and let those memories flood back.

Ingredients:

  • 250g butter (softened)
  • 125g castor sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 325g of plain flour
  • 50g of custard powder
  • 150g of strawberry jam
  • 200g of rhubarb
  • 75g granulated sugar
  • 50g of oats
  • 1 orange

Instructions:

  1. Place the soften butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat together until soft, light and fluffy, its really important to make sure your butter is room temperature so it will cream together with the sugar.
  2. Add in the egg yolks and continue to mix while you measure out the remaining ingredients.
  3. Mix the custard powder and flour together and add slowly into the bowl until it just starts to come together.
  4. Scoop out 3/4’s the mix on to a clean work surface and knead together to make a soft dough.
  5. Press the mixture into a baking tray(2-cmx10cm approx) lined with parchment paper.
  6. Using you fingers press the dough down firmly to make a tradition shortbread base, it should be about 1cm deep.
  7. With the remaining dough add in the oats and orange zest then crumble it up in your hands to make a crumble.
  8. Pour the crumble out on to another baking tray.
  9. Bake both trays in the oven for 20 minutes at 160c until golden.
  10. While the shortbread is cooking its time to make the jam for the filling.
  11. Dice the rhubarb into 1cm chunks and place in a sauce pan.
  12. Cook on a medium heat for 10 minutes until soft, then pour off the excess liquid.
  13. Add in the strawberry jam and simmer for 2 minutes.
  14. Using a spoon mix the jam together, then pour over the shortbread, as it warm it will spread easily.
  15. Break the crumble up and scatter the topping evenly over the jam, leave to set and cut into portions.
