step by step

  • 1Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Trim the rhubarb and cut it into 3cm chunks. Scatter in an ovenproof baking dish with the ginger and 75g of the sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Drain the rhubarb, reserving the juices; whiz half of the rhubarb chunks with the juices. Toss with the remaining rhubarb chunks.
  • 2Heat the milk, butter, lemon zest and 25g of the remaining sugar in a pan to simmering point. Remove from the heat.
  • 3Whisk the breadcrumbs into the milk mixture, then the egg yolks. Divide between 4 x 200ml buttered heatproof dishes. Bake for 20 minutes or until set.
  • 4Divide the rhubarb equally between the puddings, spreading it over the breadcrumb layer.
  • 5Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then gradually whisk in the last 50g of sugar to make a glossy meringue. Top the puddings with the meringue mix and bake for 6-8 minutes or until golden and set. Dust lightly with icing sugar to serve.
