Recipe Tips

  • Cornflakes are often gluten free these days but it’s important to check before you make use of them. If you’re unable to get your hands on any, then simply double the number of walnuts.
  • The sugar in the filling is completely optional but it does help offset the tartness of the rhubarb. If you prefer then you can leave the sugar out, the natural sugars in the apple should take away most of the tartness.
  • You can basically use any type of apple in this dish but baking apples will cook the best.
