18 March 2016

When we visited Sara (see her home here), she shared this delicious recipe. ‘In Spring, a friend of mine gives me rhubarb from her garden and I freeze it so I can use it all year round,’ she says. ‘This recipe is so easy to make – you get all the taste and comfort of baking with just 10 minutes’ preparation.’ What’s your favourite #littlething recipe?

‘This is a recipe that I return to throughout the year. I use pre-cut frozen rhubarb straight from the freezer, but you can use apples instead of rhubarb as the seasons change’
