Simple rhubarb cake, but please with Cream ?! It’s really funny, because some people love and others hate Cream . I am definitely one of the lovers, I must get that from my dad. On Thursday it’s that time again, Father’s Day is coming up and I’m already looking forward to a little Coffee klatsch with my dad. He loves all Fruit cake n, Cakes , pastries with Poppy seed , cinnamon and whatever else is delicious. On top must always be a big blob Cream . I am now very happy that there are such great cream alternatives on the market. In any case, I’m excited to hear what he has to say about this one. Cake says, because my dad is actually my biggest critic. It could be a little sweeter, there is something wrong with the consistency, you could still make it fluffier. I am curious and will gladly report to you.

The bottom is once again simply knitted. Flour, sugar, baking powder, starch, bourbon vanilla, turmeric, margarine, yogurt or cottage cheese and Vegetable milk . This cake doesn’t come completely without fat, but at least I reduced it. Work into a smooth dough and off into a springform pan. Then comes also only the rhubarb on the dough, which I have previously cut into pieces. Press a little firmly and then off into the oven.

TIP: If you want to bake the dough gluten-free, simply add 2 teaspoons of locust bean gum to the gluten-free flour mixture .

How healthy is rhubarb actually?

I must confess that rhubarb is one of the species Vegetables that I have not yet used so often in the kitchen. Maybe it’s because I always see the sticks lying around in the organic supermarket and I’ve never come up with anything great to do with them. Did you know that rhubarb is a vegetable and is often mistakenly called a fruit? The red-green sticks don’t necessarily look like Apples or pears.

The taste of rhubarb is rather sour and less fruity, the season begins in early April and ends in June.

TIP: The greener the stalks, the more sour the rhubarb tastes; the redder, the “less sour”.

Let’s get down to the real issue, which is whether rhubarb is actually healthy and why:

  • Very low in calories with 14kcal per 100g
  • High content of calcium, phorsphor and vitamin C
  • Particularly high content of potassium (270mg per 100g), can positively influence the acid-base balance and contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure
  • Rich in antioxidants

CONCLUSION: Rhubarb is a sour treat, however, it brings a wonderful and most importantly healthy touch to any dish. I deliberately do not spare sugar in this cake and with good reason. Try a little piece of rhubarb and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Not in the mood for rhubarb today after all? Then I make a Strawberry cake with vanilla pudding, Coffee cake with cinnamon sugar or juicy Banana cake suggested.
