Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 190C. Rinse rhubarb, drain and transfer to a bowl. Add apple, sugar, honey, cornflour and lemon juice and stir to combine, then place in a 1.5 litre capacity ovenproof dish.
  • 02
  • For buttermilk and cinnamon pastry, process flour, 2 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, butter and 1 tsp sea salt in a food processor until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add buttermilk and process until mixture forms a dough, then transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to 4mm thick and, using a 7cm-diameter pastry cutter, cut out rounds and arrange over rhubarb mixture, overlapping slightly. Brush tops with a little extra buttermilk. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, scatter over pastry and bake for 45-50 minutes or until fruit is bubbling and pastry is golden and risen. Serve with pouring cream.
