This article was written for Annabel & Grace, which is now part of Rest Less.

Who doesn’t love the mellow tones and enduring enthusiasm of Nigel Slater… I certainly do. His TV programmes are a joy to watch even if he does seem to have far more useful leftovers in his fridge than I ever do! This recipe of his, for Fast Rhubarb Tart, is something I am going to knock up again for pud tomorrow – can’t wait.

FAST RHUBARB TART Nigel Slater Annabel and Grace at CountryWivesFast Rhubarb Tart 

Ingredients serves 2/3
5-6 stalks rhubarb
good shake of light brown sugar
frozen ready-rolled all-butter puff pastry, defrosted
1 tsp butter, for greasing
flour, for dusting
2 large organic eggs, separated
2 tbsp unrefined caster sugar
250g/9oz tub mascarpone
2-3 drops vanilla extract

How to prepare

STOP PRESS: Even though I slightly burnt the edges of the pastry, this Fast Rhubarb Tart was actually rather good…I had some pastry left over so did one with bananas (sprinkled with brown sugar) which was also delish. I did not put the egg in the cream as per Nigel’s recipe because I couldn’t be arsed, just added vanilla drops and some caster sugar to the marscapone. A drop of rum or brandy would have been a good idea too, but too late now, the tarts went fast!!  Grace x
