Dessert of the Week: Nature’s Pleasure Rhubarb Crumble Tart

By Andrew In Recipes

The recipe below is as supplied (from the people behind Kellogg’s new Nature’s Pleasure baked cereal). I made a few changes. Rather than making my own pasty case I used a ‘Delia cheat’ ready-made one and, seeing as fresh rhubarb has yet to arrive around these-‘ere-parts,a mix of frozen fruits (blackberries, rhubarb, blackcurrants and plums) was substituted. Still good though.

    delicious – after that brilliant spat on the Guardian, I’m surprised at you. Tart looks good though, I must grudgingly admit.
