Rhubarb and Custard Tray Bake

The last few days of glorious sunshine certainly makes me think that summer is on the way and with that in mind I've been in the kitchen whisking up a few treats that are ideal for both lunch boxes and family picnics. 

This delicious tray bake is easy to make and features a traditional flavour combo - rhubarb and custard!

Rhubarb and custard tray bake recipe


280g Rhubarb
220g caster sugar
250g butter
3 large eggs
200g self-raising flour 
400g vanilla custard

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and line 2 baking trays
  • Cut the rhubarb into small chucks approx 2cm in length, scatter them onto the paper in the first baking tray and sprinkle over approx 20g of caster sugar
  • Bake for 25 minutes until softened and caramelised slightly and set to one side to cool
  • In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter with the remaining sugar and then add in the eggs, flour and the vanilla custard, mixing well
  • Stir in 3/4 of the rhubarb and pour the mixture into the second baking tray
  • Once level add the remaining rhubarb on top and push it into the mixture gently
  • Bake for 1 hour at 180 degrees, until firm and well risen
  • Leave to cool and then cut into pieces (approx 24)
  • Scoff!
