A new day started with time spent with my mum and aunt, searching for sewing machine. My mum thought that I would inherit it but no. I have no such talent, artful hands and mind. I invited my aunt to stay and baked a cake, Rhubarb. Friends said they never heard of Rhubarb. Here is a shot. It is vegetable but defined as fruit in the US as it is mostly used for pies and other foods for its tart taste. It tastes sour. Fresh raw stalks are crispy.
I am curious to make a good Rhubarb cake. The last trial was not a big success as the Rhubarb from Taste was not fresh. The flesh after peeling the skin was tiny and I had to make up the weight by adding pear. So, another trial with a handsome investment on fresh Rhubarb. It is made with cake batter (flour, butter, sugar, etc), Rhubarb mixed with ground ginger and sugar and streusal topping. It’s not so much a cake but a superb dessert best with ice cream. What an enjoyment!
