Rhubarb and Yoghurt Cake

 This is the second easy rhubarb recipe I made with my sil's rhubarb. It's just a variation on the yoghurt cake all French families seem to make. You use the yoghurt pot as a measure. 



1 small pot natural yoghurt - use this pot to measure 3 pots of caster sugar, 3 pots of sr flour, 3/4 pot of sunflower oil, 1/4 pot milk
2 eggs
1 tspn baking powder
1 tspn vanilla extract
pinch salt
250g rhubarb cut into chunks

Preheat oven 200C/gas6
Grease and base line a 20cm round cake tin.

Beat all the ingredients together except the rhubarb, then stir the chunks in.

Spoon into the tin and bake for 30 mins till golden.


A good moist cake, not too sweet. Love the texture of the rhubarb. A simple cake to have with a cuppa, or as a dessert with some crème fraiche or vanilla ice cream.

Am away for a week, so next week's post will be later than usual.

I can't wait for the weekend, so we can have another rhubarb dessert - ours is growing really fast at the moment. This simple sounding cake looks really good!

'Lavender and Lovage' has a rhubarb challenge running until the end of the month - you could add this.

A yoghurt cake is always welcome as far as I'm concerned and rhubarb makes it better still.
