Rhubarb-Almond Cake

Ingredients

Vegetarian

Produce

  • 1 tbsp Orange, zest
  • 3/4 lbs Rhubarb

Refrigerated

  • 2 Eggs

Baking & Spices

  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp Almond extract
  • 1/2 cup Almond meal
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom, ground
  • 1 Powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/16 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla extract

Nuts & Seeds

  • 1/3 cup Almonds

Dairy

  • 1/2 cup Butter, unsalted
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of a 10-inch springform pan with a round of parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat 1 cup of the sugar and the butter on medium speed until light and creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs in one at a time, mixing after each addition. Then beat in the yogurt, orange zest and the extracts.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom and salt. Add these dry ingredients to the cake batter, adding in about one-third at a time, mixing on low speed until no more white streaks remain. Set aside.
  5. Trim and discard any leaves and woody ends from the rhubarb. If the rhubarb stalks are wide, slice them in half lengthwise. Then cut the rhubarb stalks into pieces about 1 1/2-inches in length.
  6. Spread about half of the cake batter into an even layer on the bottom of your prepared springform pan. The batter will be thick and a bit tacky. Layer about half of the rhubarb on top, leaving about 1-inch between the pieces and around the edges of the pan. Then spread the remaining cake batter over the rhubarb.
  7. Transfer the cake to your pre-heated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Rhubarb Struesel Cake
Rhubarb Struesel Cake

Easy Rhubarb Struesel Cake

Ingredients needed : 12

Produce

  • 2 1/2 cups Rhubarb, fresh

Refrigerated

  • 2 Eggs

Baking & Spices

  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 2/3 cups Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup White sugar

Dairy

  • 9/16 cup Butter, unsalted
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup Sour cream

Instructions :

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Wash 3-4 stalks of rhubarb and chop them into bite sized pieces (you'll need about 2 and a half cups of chopped rhubarb to cover the cake.). Set them aside in a bowl while you prepare the cake batter.
  • Add the butter and the sugar to the bowl of your stand mixer and beat them together until the mixture is fluffy and becomes a pale color (about 4-5 minutes).
  • Feel free to use a hand mixer if you prefer.
  • Add the eggs and the vanilla and beat them in on medium speed until the mixture is smooth. It's a good idea to scrape down the bowl periodically to make sure everything is incorporated evenly.
  • Add the milk and sour cream and beat in these ingredients on low speed until they're combined.
  • To a separate bowl add the flour, the baking powder and the salt and mix these ingredients together with a fork or a wire whisk. Once they're all incorporated, dump the flour mixture into the bowl of the stand mixer with the wet ingredients. Turn the mixer on low and watch the batter come together. As soon as you see the batter form with streaks of flour throughout, turn off the mixer and remove the bowl.
  • Over-mixing at this stage can cause an overly dense and dry cake with large air bubbles, which you definitely don't want. Using a rubber spatula, scrape down the sides of the bowl by hand and gently fold in the remaining flour. Be sure to stop folding as soon as everything is combined.
  • Grease a rectangular glass cake pan with some butter and pour the batter into the pan, using the spatula to push the batter into the corners and even out the surface. Don't worry, the batter will seem thick but it's supposed to be like that.
  • Spread the rhubarb over the top of the batter.
  • In a clean bowl mix together the flour, sugar and cinnamon for the streusel topping. Add in the melted butter and mix everything together with a fork until the mixture becomes crumbly.
  • Sprinkle the streusel mixture over the cake and the rhubarb, making sure to spread it at evenly as possible and into all the corners.
  • Bake the cake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 47-50 minutes. When it's finished baking the topping will be slightly browned on top, the rhubarb will be bubbly, and when you insert a toothpick into the centre of the cake it will come out clean.
