Rhubarb Cake


Sheryl NormandeauIt's rhubarb season here in Calgary!  I don't have a plant of my own, but it's easy enough to get a hold of some delicious stalks for baking...everyone is more than willing to part with their bounty!   In honor of this spring delight, I thought I'd share my favorite go-to recipe for rhubarb cake.  Enjoy!    

Rhubarb Cake (recipe adapted from The Purity Cookbook:  The Complete Guide to Canadian Cooking)  

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Place 2 cups fresh rhubarb (cut into 1" chunks), 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and 3 tbsp melted butter into a 9" square cake pan.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 10 minutes.  

In the meantime, sift together in a large bowl 1 1/4 cups white flour, 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1 tbsp ground flaxseed, 2 tsp baking powder, and a pinch of salt.    

In another bowl, cream together 1/2 cup soft butter and 3/4 cup granulated sugar.  Beat in 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla.
