Rhubarb Cake

When you have a blog, you are always looking for new recipes to share new articles. It’s a bit of a drift. Even if you have the ultimate recipe for this or that, you’re always looking for something better. This week I bought rhubarb

. I have a great recipe for rhubarb cake but I wanted to try something else. So I took my inspiration from a recipe published in Delicious magazine called rhubarb and vanilla sponge pudding.

This cake looks a little bit like a cobbler. We bake the fruit and put the dough on it. I admit that I was a bit apprehensive about the result (especially when I spread the dough on the pre-baked fruit) and in fact it’s too good. The cake absorbs the rhubarb juice, it’s tip top.


The recipe for 1 cake:

Split the vanilla bean in half. Using the tip of a knife, collect the seeds and put them in a salad bowl. Add 200 g caster sugar, mix, then add the flour and stir again.

Peel and wash the rhubarb and cut the stalks into 5 cm sections. Dry them and place them in the sugar-farina-vanilla mixture.

Whip the butter and 115 g of sugar for 5 minutes until the mixture is light and airy. Add one egg, while continuing to beat, then the second one, also adding 1 tablespoon of flour with incorporated baking powder from the 150 g. Pour in the liquid vanilla, then the rest of the flour and a pinch of salt. Continue beating and finish by pouring the 3 tablespoons of milk. Mix.

With this paste, cover the pre-cooked rhubarb. Go ahead spoon by spoon and spread as you can.

Let rest then 10 minutes before serving lukewarm. If you are very greedy, accompany with a custard. I admit that at room temperature it is also top top top. The cake drinks the juice of the rhubarb is divine.
