French rhubarb cake

I have a patch of rhubarb growing in my garden, and other than stewed rhubarb (memories of childhood) or rhubarb crumble, I didn’t know what else to do with it. I found a fail-safe rhubarb crumble muffin recipe online, which I used several times but I decided I needed a change, so turned to Pinterest.

This recipe caught my eye as it is ‘French’ (being a French teacher) and has almonds in (yum). It was an easy recipe to follow, but I didn’t have half the rhubarb it called for, even with my supply being supplemented with some from my mum’s garden. Oh well, I just went for it and saw how it went… and it went well!

It was a very attractive finished cake and was a simple recipe to follow. It could prove a little dry, which may be why it called for so much rhubarb, but that just means it needs to be eaten up quickly whilst it is nice and moist! It was very tasty with a few strawberries as a garnish – something sweet to counteract the tartness of the rhubarb. A definite contender for the old muffin recipe.

My version... with distinctly less rhubarb in it!
