Spiced Rhubarb cake recipe

Sue asked for the recipe for this yesterday so here it is. It is sort of a cross between a cake and a pudding. You can also make it with peaches or anything else you fancy.


Spiced rhubarb cake
75g sugar
100g self raising flour
100g butter
2 eggs
1 tsp ground ginger
1tsp mixed spice
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cream the butter and sugar, add eggs, fold in flour and spices. Mix well and spoon into a greased 8” / 26cm cake tin.
600g rhubarb
sugar for sprinkling
Chop rhubarb into 1” pieces, place on top of cake mixture and sprinkle with a little sugar
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
75g butter
50g Demerara sugar
100g flour
Rub butter and flour together to a breadcrumb consistency and add sugar. Cover the rhubarb with the crumble topping
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bake at 180 degrees (160 fan) / gas mark 4
check after 45 minutes (we gave ours another 10 minutes)
