This is a great way of getting the children to eat more fruit and the muesli gives added fibre to their diet. My kids never had much problem wolfing it down!


If you fancy a change, add 250g of halved strawberries or even the frozen variety (thawed) in after apples and rhubarb is cooked to give added sweetness to the dessert.



4 medium apples, cored and chopped
4 large stems of rhubarb, trimmed, rinsed and chopped
1/4 pint of water
100g caster sugar
250g muesli
75g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
100g butter, chopped
50g firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 170°C
  • Place the apples, rhubarb and the caster sugar in a large fry pan and cover in the water.
  • Stir over a low heat until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer, stirring constantly until the mixture has thickened.
  • Meanwhile combine the muesli, baking powder and flour in a medium bowl.
  • Rub in the butter until it is all combined.
  • Stir in the brown sugar and the cinnamon.
  • Spread the fruit mixture into an ovenproof dish.
  • Spoon the muesli crumble mixture over the top, so it is around an inch thick.
  • Bake in a moderate oven 30 minutes or until the topping is crispy and brown.
  • Serve with lots of custard or cream.
