Rhubarb Yoghurt Cake

 Last year I was given a rhubarb plant from a local group which shares excess plants. I didn't cut it even though I desperately wanted to, as I love rhubarb! I was told it would make it stronger for this year!

It's doing well again, so this is the first recipe I've made using it, and it's a very simple one.You use a yoghurt pot as a measure. Yoghurt pot recipes are very popular in France.

You need: 250g rhubarb cut into chunks, 1 pot of yoghurt, 3 pots of caster sugar, 3 pots of sr flour, 1 tspn baking powder, 3/4 pot vegetable oil, 2 eggs, 1 tspn vanilla extract, 1/4 pot of milk

Preheat oven 200C/gas 6

Grease and base line a 20cm cake tin.

In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the rhubarb. Beat together. Add the rhubarb and mix in with a spatula.

Spoon into the cake tin. Bake for 30 mins till golden.

A lovely, simple cake. It has a moist crumb and is very tasty. You could add a mix of 2tbspn sugar and 1/2 tspn cinnamon  as a topping. A great way to use up my first rhubarb!

Our rhubarb plant did very well from the first year - I didn't know you are supposed to leave them to their own devices for a year.
We are great fans of rhubarb in this house - in the UK that is - we have failed miserable to get one to grow in France.
I've never had much luck growing my own rhubarb for some reason but I do love the stuff. I've been swapping some of my border seedlings and cuttings with a neighbour for some of his rhubarb this year, though. I'm also a big fan of the classic yoghurt pot cakes that you find in France but I've yet to make one with rhubarb. Sounds like an ideal combination.
