Rhubarb yoghurt cake

Got rhubarb, and yoghurt and I have seen Silvia Colloca TV program, using yoghurt, and butter with blackberries years ago. I decided to recreated her recipe with rhubarb for I have seen rhubarb can be added as pudding or make crumble.

I am going to make it a cake. This cake is moist, delicious and healthy comfort cake. You can hide the vegetable in the cake. Let’s bake!!!!

Ingredients

5 stalks of rhubarb, trimmed, washed, cut into 2cm lengths
215g (1 cup) caster sugar
250g butter, at room temperature, plus 3 Tbs melted butter for greasing pan
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
3 eggs
380g self-raising flour
1 Tsp bicarb
1 1/4 cup natural yoghurt
30 ml water extra if batter too thick
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a 23cm round cake pan with melted butter to grease. Mix rhubarb, cinnamon and brown sugar in a baking dish. Cook, in oven for 25 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Use an electric beater to beat together butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition until well combined.

Stir in flour, yoghurt until combined. If batter too thick add water. Spoon half the mixture evenly over the base of prepared pan. Top with rhubarb. Spoon over remaining mixture and smooth surface.

Bake in oven for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from oven. Set aside for 5 minutes before turning onto a serving plate.
