Rhubarb is Back (and so is this recipe)

Last week I plucked the first rhubarb of the season from the ‘allotment’ up in North Cork.

So this weekend I made the superbly easy and scrumptiously tasty, Rhubarb and Orange Cake. So if you were looking for ideas as to what to do with all that rhubarb flourishing forth, look no further. The combination of orange and rhubarb is divine and when combined into an easy peasy recipe, what more are you waiting for?

  1. I looooove rhubarb. Texas is *not* the ideal place to grow it, but I planted some just the other day, all the same, and it’s exploding from the ground. If it bolts too quickly (as I’m guessing it will in the short, heat-driven season here), at least I’ll get a nostalgic and impressive plant to fill my other senses. If I can rescue any stalks, I’ll fill my senses of taste and smell in more satisfying ways. πŸ˜‰ This looks to be a fair treat! If it lacks anything, it might be a massive dose of crΓ¨me Chantilly, perhaps infused with a tot of Amaretto to highlight those nice sliced almonds as well…though I’ll gladly stick my fork (or face) directly into that pretty cake, which does look quite divine as it stands. Stood, that is, as I’m sure it was inhaled directly. πŸ™‚


  2. It sounds and look divine! I’ve really enjoyed the banter too (Dale and MM)….rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb…forgive the intrusion and eaves dropping…rhubarb, rhubarb, rhubarb…I’m not butting in, honestly, just chatting away to myself here. πŸ™‚

      1. On going health issues but hoping to get some insight into that tomorrow! We haven’t been to Sherkin much but loved being there last weekend and plan to go again this weekend. P

  3. Now I’ve just got to plant some rhubarb for next season, or here I think it will do nicely throughout winter if I get it in very soon . . . . . . . . but maybe not for picking this year 😦 and the shop bought stuff is awful, tired and limp. Enjoy yours John I’m just a tad jealous πŸ˜€


      1. Oh no, not here John. In summer it’s hot and humid and it turns to slime, if I’m lucky I may get two years and then when it’s just starting to produce well, poof it dies on me 😦 Guess I can’t have mangoes and avacadoes and rhurbarb πŸ˜€


  4. How about us, across the pond who are still buried under two or more feet of snow and cannot remember where the rhubarb is planted because we can’t see it? πŸ˜‰
