1 Combine the oranges, rhubarb, flour, cinnamon, salt, sugar and half of the bread cubes in a large bowl and mix well. Spread this mixture in the bottom of a medium-sized casserole dish.
2 In another bowl, mix together the coconut, melted butter, orange zest and the rest of the bread cubes. Spread this mixture over the fruit.
3 Bake at 180°C until the rhubarb is tender and the topping is golden, about 25 minutes.

Jill says: "Your recent article about rhubarb reminded me of a recipe I found very many years ago, which my family and friends have loved. Here is the slightly modified method I use. It takes 20-30 minutes to prepare but is worth it! The leftovers are yummy with breakfast cereal!"
