Aren’t rhubarb and custard just the perfect combination? For me rhubarb and ginger crumble served up with a large dollop of custard is comfort food at it’s best. That said it’s not always the lightest and this is how I discovered this beauty of a recipe. Rhubarb is roasted in the oven and cooled then layered up with granola and chilled custard for a lighter, more refreshing take on a classic. Now clearly you could just take that serving suggestion and run with it for yourself but if you are up for making the custard and granola for yourself then read on.
When I said I would post a series of healthier comfort food recipes I figured that wouldn’t be complete without including a crumble recipe. There’s so much great fruit around in the Autumn and a crumble is the perfect way to enjoy it. I make this crumble topping in large batches in my food processor and freeze – that way you have a quick dessert to hand whenever you feel the need.
Pulling together a recipe index for the blog I realised it’s been a bit light on dessert recipes. So, in the interest of balance I thought I would share this fab little recipe for a quick pudding. These cheesecake jars take about 5 minutes to throw together. Once you’ve got the base you can vary your toppings and flavours to suit your mood. They taste fantastic and, as desserts go, are relatively low sugar. What more could you ask for?
Are you looking for a recipe that you can whizz up in no time for a healthy dessert?
Do you want a tasty mid-afternoon snack without the sugar slump?
Do you need it to be dairy free or gluten free? What about vegetarian or vegan?
Well you have definitely come to the right place.
