Step 1

Combine the rhubarb, sugar, honey, butter and cinnamon in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and pierce once or twice to allow steam to escape. Microwave until the rhubarb is tender, about 6 minutes. Carefully remove the plastic wrap and stir.

Meanwhile, break the shredded wheat into smaller pieces in a bowl. Dust with confectioners' sugar and cinnamon.

Spoon the rhubarb compote into bowls, top with ice cream and sprinkle with the shredded wheat.

Reader Comment:Super quick & easy. I added a bit of corn starch, diluted in water, after 5 mins, to thicken it up and then stirred in fresh strawberries.
