Rhubarb Pie & Overnight Weetabix (13/05/22)

Rhubarb Pie

This recipe was born out of a need to use up rhubarb! I was going to be making an apple tart and felt guilty buying apples when we have a glut of rhubarb then I realised the sharpness of the rhubarb would be a problem for me. So I sorted that with caramel sauce. It’s now a firm family favourite!

Ingredients

  • 4 thick stalks of rhubarb
  • 1 tin carnation caramel (any toffee sauce will do)
  • 2 tbls golden granulated sugar
  • 375g pack puff pastry

Method

  1. Set oven to 200 degrees (or go by the puff pastry recommendation).
  2. In a deep oven tray or dish, put the tin of caramel in an even layer.
  3. Chop rhubarb into 2 inch pieces, put in a single layer on top of the caramel sauce.
  4. Sprinkle the sugar on the rhubarb.
  5. Top with puff pastry cut to size, tuck down the edges, prick a couple of holes in it to let steam escape.
  6. Oven cook til puff pastry is risen and golden. This takes 20 – 25 mins.
  7. Serve with cream, ice cream or custard.

The only downside of this dish is that it looks like Beef Pie! Variations can include banana, apple, pears etc. Any fruit that goes with caramel really.

Overnight Weetabix

This recipe was born out of a need to use up rhubarb! I was going to be making an apple tart and felt guilty buying apples when we have a glut of rhubarb then I realised the sharpness of the rhubarb would be a problem for me. So I sorted that with caramel sauce. It’s now a firm family favourite!

Ingredients (Serves One)

  • 2 Weetabix
  • 2 1/2 tbsp coffee (I used decaf, milk is an option)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (I used honey)
  • 50g greek yogurt
  • 50g cream cheese (I used only greek yogurt)
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • Small banana

Method

  1. Finely crush the Weetabix into your chosen container. Add the coffee and 1 tbsp maple syrup, good stir to wet all the Weetabix. You might need more liquid. Spread level using the back of the spoon.
  2. In a separate bowl mix the yogurt, cream cheese if using, 2 tbsp peanut butter and the remaining tbsp of maple syrup (if you’re anything like me, you used all of it on the Weetabix, just get more!).
  3. Peel and chop the banana into 1cm rounds, layer on top of the Weetabix.
  4. Top with the yogurt mixture, drizzle remaining peanut butter(again, I forgot!). Cover and put overnight in the fridge.
  5. We preferred it served with some milk.

You can add protein powder, use almond paste, jam, Biscoff or Nutella instead of peanut butter. Different fruits work, choose your favourites. Flavoured yogurts. Of course you can dampen the Weetabix with any liquid of your choice, fruit juice would work too. Just remember if you use milk, it’s only suitable for one overnight. You can make 2/3 days worth if you use other liquids.
