Year Round Recipes – Rhubarb

Baked Rhubarb

This is the method of cooking rhubarb used in Nigel Slater’s cake recipe below, and it is perfect. Nigel, I love you.

Heat oven to 180 ℃.

Wash and cut 500g of rhubarb into short lengths, as desired.

Place on baking tray, sprinkle over sugar as desired (say 50gms) and 4 tablespoons water (could also use orange juice).

Bake 30-40 minutes until soft but still retaining shape.

Rhubarb, Polenta and Cinnamon Cake

This is so very good. Don’t skip the step of placing the cake tin on a hot baking tray in oven. It helps the bottom of the cake cook despite the moisture from cooked rhubarb.
