Rhubarb and Custard

No, not this...



but this...




...and, in fact, not EXACTLY like that, as I used nectarines instead of rhubarb.

As usual, I followed the instructions as well as I could (considering I had to substitute some of the ingredients) and even so, I feel the pastry was a bit too brown...


I haven't tried it yet, as it is still hot out of the oven, but it looks as though it will be quite good.  I say that because I tasted the custard part before it was cooked, and I tasted the nectarines (baked for 10 minutes with soft brown sugar) before I put them in the pastry case) and they both tasted fantastic!  Since the pastry took a little bit more effort than my normal shortcrust, I'm just hoping that it will be OK too...

No calories, I guess, since there was no mention of them in the recipe,,.

Oh I laughed so hard at your no calories comment since they weren't mentioned in the recipe! What a fabulous way to think. It looks delicious and has made me hungry for custard with rhubarb.
