  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the rhubarb in a single layer in a shallow roasting pan. Sprinkle with caster sugar and drizzle with orange juice. Sprinkle with orange zest. Roast for 10 mins or until rhubarb is tender but still holds its shape. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Step 2

    Reduce oven to 100°C. Combine the flour, apple and brown sugar in a large bowl. Whisk the egg, buttermilk and milk in a jug. Add to the flour mixture and stir to combine. Set aside for 15 mins to rest.

  3. Step 3

    Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Brush with melted butter. Pour two ¼ cup (60ml) quantities of batter into pan, allowing room for spreading. Cook for 2 mins or until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn and cook for a further 1-2 mins or until golden. Transfer to a baking tray. Cover loosely with foil and place in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter to make 12 pancakes.
  4. Step 4

    Stack the pancakes on serving plates. Top with rhubarb, any pan juices and granola. Serve with yoghurt.
