3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting

2 large rectangles shredded wheat cereal

Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

1 pint vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt

1 pound rhubarb, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 4 cups)

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup honey


  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.
  2. Meanwhile, break the shredded wheat into smaller pieces in a bowl. Dust with confectioners' sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Spoon the rhubarb compote into bowls, top with ice cream and sprinkle with the shredded wheat.
