Ingredients
 

  • 50 g plain flour
  • 60 g salted butter
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 120 g pecans or hazelnuts, finely chopped
  • 80 g dark brown sugar
  • 400 g readymade sweet pastry, to line a 24cm x 4cm deep loose bottomed flan case and blind baked, so you have a pastry case
  • 75 g packet Instant Bird’s custard
  • 100 ml boiling water
  • 150 g chopped white chocolate
  • 200 g Yorkshire rhubarb, washed well and chopped into 1cm pieces
  • 4 tbsp good-quality strawberry jam
  • dash water
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • clotted cream to serve

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C gas 6.

For the topping:

  • Rub the butter into the flour until you have fine breadcrumbs, add the allspice, chopped nuts and brown sugar, mix well, then place into a baking dish and cook in the preheated oven until crunchy and well coloured. Blitz in a food processor if needed.

For the custard filling:

  • Make up a thick custard by adding 100ml boiling water to the custard powder, add the white chocolate and mix well until melted.
  • Pour the custard into the pastry case and leave to cool completely. Set in the fridge if need be.

For the rhubarb:

  • Place the chopped rhubarb, jam, water and vanilla into a saucepan and cook over a high heat until the rhubarb starts to break up. Spoon into a colander and drain well, reserving the cooking liquid and reduce in a small saucepan until syrupy.
  • Spoon the drained rhubarb over the set custard and then top with the crunchy crumble topping, chill well.
  • Serve in wedges with clotted cream (Rodda's is perfect) and the syrup leftover from cooking the rhubarb.
