Rhubarb Sour Cream Cake

, ,

Spring is here! Its rhubarb time! As a kid we loved to wear the huge rhubarb leaf as a hat.

Unfortunately we don’t have rhubarb in our garden, fortunately we have markets selling regional fruits and vegetables.

Actually rhubarb is a vegetable, but it is mostly used in sweet dishes, or as juice, marmalade, jam and in cakes and tartes.

This time I tried rhubarb in a sour cream cake.

Easy to do, taste refreshing and not too sweet.

The shortcrust dough is kneaded very fast then pressed to form in a mould. Place in a refrigerator to cool.

Clean and cut the rhubarb and mix the sour cream mixture. Rhubarb and sour cream mixture in the mould and place in the oven.

The first 15 minutes at a higher temperature.

Another great cake with sour cream is our Strawberry Sour Cream Cake.

      Hi Micky! In a sachet is about 37-40g custard powder. (If you cook it, it is for 500ml milk.) Enjoy baking. Greetings Maggi
