Rhubarb and Custard Pie with Butter Crumble

Serves 8

350g Rhubarb

½ tsp Grated Root Ginger

100 g Golden Caster Sugar

1 Large Egg and 2 Egg Yolk

1 tbsp Plain Flour

250ml Cream

350g Sweet Shortcrust Pastry

For the Topping

50g Melted Butter

50 g Demerara Sugar

50 g Porridge Oats

½ tsp Ground Ginger

(Mix the Melted Butter, Demerara Sugar and Porridge Oats together)

Cut the Rhubard into bite size pieces. Put them in the frying pan with half the sugar and ginger and warm through until the sugar dissolves. Place in a bowl with the juices and leave to cool. Pre – Heat oven to 180°C / 160° Fan Oven.

Roll the Sweet Short Crust Pastry quite thin and use to line a deep loose base 24cm fluted flan tin. Pre Bake in oven with boiling beans for about 20mins until pastry is golden.

Turn Oven Temperature to 200°C / Fan 180°C / Gas Mark 6. Beat the egg, yolks, extract, remaining caster sugar and the flour. Then whisk in Cream. Spoon the rhubarb onto the cook pastry. Pour the Cream mixture over and bake for 20 minutes or until the custard is lightly set and there is a skin on top.

Place the topping mixture evenly over the pie. Return to the oven for 15 minutes, until the crumble is golden.

This pie will rise and crack a bit but don’t worry it will settle back on cooling.

Serve with whipped Cream.

Especially one's like this from Mark Bourke who says... 

'Marty on Lyric is my inoculation from anything the day can throw at me, he’s up there with Byrne, Wogan & Andrews as Ireland’s greatest broadcaster.'..........Thank you Mark......Tenner in the post!!

Other messages......

His morning show on Lyric is quite simply the best radio in Ireland. He has such a perfect delivery. An encyclopaedia of clever dadjokes and puns but with a light touch, never hanging on for the applause. Reminds me of a jolly, self-deprecating Colonel Mustard.   Jonathan McCrea

...Thanks very much for all the good cheer every morning Marty and never going on about all the bad news out there!! You are a tonic to be sure!! ........Patricia in Offaly

....Good morning Marty, I am a nurse working on night duty and listen to lyric through the night. Always glad to hear your dulcet tones at 7am as I know I will be off duty soon. .... Keep up the good work and music and the 'corny' jokes....Moira in Dublin 6
