This is a great way of getting the children to eat more fruit and the muesli gives added fibre to their diet. My kids never had much problem wolfing it down!

Tip:

If you fancy a change, add 250g of halved strawberries or even the frozen variety (thawed) in after apples and rhubarb is cooked to give added sweetness to the dessert.

 

Ingredients

4 medium apples, cored and chopped
4 large stems of rhubarb, trimmed, rinsed and chopped
1/4 pint of water
100g caster sugar
250g muesli
75g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
100g butter, chopped
50g firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 170°C
  • Place the apples, rhubarb and the caster sugar in a large fry pan and cover in the water.
  • Stir over a low heat until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer, stirring constantly until the mixture has thickened.
  • Meanwhile combine the muesli, baking powder and flour in a medium bowl.
  • Rub in the butter until it is all combined.
  • Stir in the brown sugar and the cinnamon.
  • Spread the fruit mixture into an ovenproof dish.
  • Spoon the muesli crumble mixture over the top, so it is around an inch thick.
  • Bake in a moderate oven 30 minutes or until the topping is crispy and brown.
  • Serve with lots of custard or cream.
