I made these for a dinner party and they went down a treat. So easy to make, but a really tasty and lighter alternative to Rhubarb crumble and custard!

Not sure these are very healthy especially for children, with 65grams of SUGAR!!! May need to adjust recipe a tad!

Great fun making this with the kids, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the end result. Looks nice too - serve in some posh glasses and it's a classy-looking dessert.
Best if you make sure your custard is nice and chilled.
