  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter a shallow, 1-quart baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine melted butter and brioche. Line the bottom of the baking dish with one-third of the mixture.
  3. In another bowl, combine rhubarb, apple, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and zest. Let rest until juices begin to run, 5 minutes. Then spread half of the mixture over the brioche in the dish. Top with half the remaining brioche. Spread the remaining rhubarb over that and top with the last of the brioche. Dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Spoon the warm water evenly over the top.
  4. Cover and bake in preheated oven 25 to 35 minutes, until rhubarb is tender. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C), uncover dish, and bake until top is crusty, rhubarb is soft, and bubbles form at the edges of the dish, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.

A tasty dessert which fills and rounds off any dinner well

YUM, YUM, YUM and a few more YUMs! I will probably leave the apple right out next time because I like rhubarb so much. Eat it hot! Not that I have to tell you that, it will be gone before it ...

I'll definitely make it again, it's not too sweet, just right. When I warmed up a serving the next day I added craisins. I would increase the bread and add raisins or craisins.

I had extra brioche and used that for the bread. I used a can of prepared apple pie mix for the apple and rhubarb. Everything else was the same. Tasted pretty good.

We added an extra apple and I used my homemade brioche . Ate it for breakfast :-)

Lovely flavours - I loved it. We had it with custard and it was delicious :)
