I love baking on a cold winter’s day! There’s nothing more homely than sitting by the heater indulging in a warm comforting dessert while outside is wet, windy and miserable!
It’s been such a huge lapse between bakes and without going into the detail of why, let’s just say this this bake was much needed for the soul and felt great!
So I don’t know how to describe what this latest creation is other than it’s some kind of a take on a strudel. Instead of an apple filling in layers of filo pastry or puff pastry, I made a rhubarb, pear and candied orange filling wrapped in some kind of dough that I shaped to look a bit like a strudel which I then finally drizzled with a rhubarb glaze. In short, let’s just call this a rhubarb and pear twist!
I love the tartness of rhubarb which when combined with the pears, gives the twist just the right amount of sweetness without going overboard. And I’m loving the rhubarb glaze! The colour of the glaze is 100% natural all coming from the rhubarb and it has such a wonderful taste as well. It’s definitely opened my eyes to the colours you can achieve all by using natural ingredients.
This twist was really lovely particularly with a scoop of ice cream for extra indulgence!
