For this Sweet Saturday I made for you a recipe with rhubarb. This comes from a book written by Anouck and Joris, who run the lovely B&B ‘la maison blanche aux volets bleus‘ in Bretagne, France. They give cookery courses too, just check out their site to know more.
Rhubarb Pie/Cake – Tarte au Rhubarbe
- 125 gr soft butter
- 125 gr sugar
- 3 eggs, split in whites and yolks
- 125 gr self-raising flour (or plain flour + 2 teaspoons of baking powder)
- 250 gr of rhubarb or 2 stalks
- 10 gr coarse sugar
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Mix the soft butter/molten butter and the sugar, add the egg yolks and flour.
beat the egg whites until white peaks form and spoon this carefully through the mix. Butter a baking tin with a diameter of about 25cm, I dust it than with flour so the cake will come loose even easier.
Put the mix in the tin.
Cut the rhubarb into thin slices and spread these over the mix. Sprinkle the coarse sugar over the rhubarb.
bake for 30-35 minutes in a 180°C oven.
Enjoy – Bon Apetit!
