Sluttishly Easy: Rhubarb Fool

As we've already established, I like rhubarb. A lot. But if you don't have time and energy for faffing around with a cake, this recipe is the perfect solution. It's pretty, pink, delicious and there's really not a lot to it.

Rhubarb is quite often paired with orange juice, however I used pink grapefruit juice in this recipe to give the fool a pretty double-pinkness. Plus I happened to have one hanging around in the fridge!

Rhubarb Fool (serves 4)

You'll need:

  • 400g rhubarb
  • 2tbsp pink grapefruit juice (or orange juice)
  • 3tbsp sugar plus more to taste
  • 300ml double cream
Make it!
  • Put the rhubarb, juice and 3tbsp sugar in a small pan over a medium heat. Stir it every now and then, until it makes a nice pink rhubarb mush.
  • If you're picky, now would be the time to whizz the rhubarb in a food processor until it's smooth. If, like me, you can't be bothered, just go to the next step for a more rustic fool.
  • Whip the cream in a mixer or by hand, until it thickens and forms soft, floppy peaks.
  • Stir the rhubarb mixture into the cream. Check for sweetness and stir in some more sugar if necessary. Serve in ramekins, martini glasses, or however you like.
