Melted butter, for greasing
1 bunch rhubarb, ends trimmed, washed, chopped
120g brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 egg, lightly whisked
30g butter, melted
150g self-raising flour, sifted


Preheat oven to 190°C. Brush a 20 cm X 20 cm pans with the melted butter.

Place the rhubarb, sugar and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and cook, for 2-3 minutes or until the rhubarb is tender. Remove from the heat and pour into a large bowl. Stand for 10 minutes to cool slightly.

Add the egg and melted butter and mix to combine. Add the flour and use a large metal spoon to mix until just combined. Spoon the mixture into the greased pans. Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until just cooked.
