Creamy dreamy baked rhubarb and vanilla custard tart

Served with a dollop of fresh cream or creme fraiche, this tart is lovely !

Right I said I would be posting a rhubarb recipe using the roasted rhubarb recipe I posted earlier. So I hope you were paying attention and have a nice jar of rhubarb in your fridge and ready for use.

I have based this recipe on one I found in a French patisserie book which was for a deep filled rhubarb & custard tart….now I like a deep filling like the next person 😉 but decided to adapt it for a smaller shallow tart and have made it a tad richer to compensate, almost like a brulee !
