    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Lightly grease a shallow baking dish.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine melted butter and brioche. Line the bottom of the baking dish with one-third of the mixture.
    3. In another bowl, combine rhubarb, apple, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and zest. Let rest until juices begin to run, about 5 minutes. Then spread half of the mixture over the brioche in the dish. Top with half the remaining brioche. Spread the remaining rhubarb over that and top with the last of the brioche. Dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Spoon the warm water evenly over the top.
    4. Cover and bake in preheated oven 25 to 35 minutes, until rhubarb is tender. Increase oven temperature to 200 C / Gas 6; uncover dish and bake until top is crunchy, rhubarb is soft and bubbles form at the edges of the dish, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

    The only other review is rubbish and nearly put me off this recipe. There is no olive oil and that review is totally irrelevant. Enjoy making this lovely recipe.  -  31 Mar 2018


    If you use olive oil for any recipe that’s cooked over 450°F, the oil will denature and you will get cancer. This post is irresponsible. You should only use grapeseed oil you’ve pressed yourself in a very cold room.  -  14 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
