Easy Rhubarb Cake

Easy Rhubarb Cake

We really like fruit cakes, especially when the fruit season starts. We take each fruit one by one and first enjoy them fresh, then in some homemade sweet. This type of cake with fluffy and flavorful batter combines wonderfully with any fruit, but I would say that rhubarb (it's not really fruit, get over it!) fits best of all. It has a sour taste in contrast to the sweet crust, a dry texture, so it won't leave the juice in the cake, and a taste resembling the pineapple, the lemon and the apple - perfect, in my opinion and not only.

The rhubarb cake tastes very fresh, I will definitely repeat the recipe every season. For this round of rhubarb cake, I had stems from my own garden. They aren't yet very thick and big, but they still have a wonderful and refreshing taste. I definitely recommend it for idle gardeners and for gourmets looking for new flavors and tastes.
