Grab yourself a cuppa, and make yourself comfortable.
No, not because this will be a long post, but because my friend Parsley over at Seasons Of My Mind has invited us all to spend the weekend sharing our favourite recipes over a cup of tea (or coffee, or something else even, I suppose, if you don't drink tea).
It didn't take me long to figure out which recipes I wanted to share.
Oh, yes, I did say recipes... Plural! You see, I've decided to share more than one recipe with you today. The reason being that I think both go well together.
So, make yourself comfortable with your prefered drink, be it tea, coffee, or whatever, and enjoy!
This is my very favourite dessert in the whole wide world... Rhubarb crumble! If I could only ever have one type of dessert I'd pick rhubarb crumble! For one thing it goes well on its own, or with custard, or with ice-cream, or with cream. For another thing, it just tastes so good! Anyway, here's the recipe:
1/2 cup butter
4 cups diced rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1. Wash the rhubarb.
2. Cook the rhubarb on a medium heat until tender.
3. Mix together the butter, sugar and flour.
4. Crumble the mixture on top of the rhubarb in a baking dish.
5. Bake in 350F oven until warm and golden brown.
6. Serve warm on its own, with ice-cream, with cream, or with custard.
And here's something that will go very well with it...
450 g low-fat natural yogurt
1. Peel and slice the bananas and put them in a large mixing bowl.
2. Mash well with a fork until the lumps have gone.
3. Gradually add the yogurt and beat well with a wooden spoon until you have a smooth, runny mixture.
4. Tip the mixture into a plastic freezeproof container.
5. Cover with a lid and freeze for about half an hour until half frozen.
6. Tip the half frozen mixture back into the mixing bowl and whisk with a balloon whisk for about 2 minutes.
7. Return the mixture to the container.
8. Re-freeze until half frozen again and whisk for a couple more minutes.
9. Tip the mixture back into the container and freeze for at least an hour.
10. Remove from the freezer half an hour before serving.
