The Simple Things - - GROWING -

So­phie: “When Ade came home from the al­lot­ment with some rhubarb, it got me think­ing about rhubarb and custard. I de­cided to do a new twist on this clas­sic flavour com­bi­na­tion to cre­ate a fruity tray­bake us­ing a left­over ba­nana. It’s sim­ple to make, so de­li­cious and a wel­come change from crum­ble!”
