Rhubarb custard pie

    1 hour

    The custard topping of this pie nicely balances out the acidity of the rhubarb, and it keeps the filling wonderfully moist even if you don't serve it right away.

    1. Trim rhubarb and cut in small pieces. Add to a bowl (no metal) and mix with the sugar. Set to a side to let it draw some juice.
    2. Add all the ingredients for the base in a bowl but do not add all the lemon juice at once. Knead swiftly until everything holds together in a ball, adding more lemon juice as needed.
    3. Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Grease a springform tin.
    4. Roll out the base on a lightly floured surface and line the springform tin, letting the base come up the sides of the tin to hold the filling. Prick the base with a fork several times. Prebake for 10 minutes.
    5. Add rhubarb to the prebaked base and distribute it evenly. In a bowl whisk cream, egg and sugar and pour over the filling.
    6. Reduce oven temperature to 180 C / Gas 4. Bake until lightly browned on top, about 35 minutes.
