rhubarb and custard cake



Rhubarb and custard - the perfect combination - and delicious in this quick and easy cake. A lovely way of using seasonal spring rhubarb too. Happy baking! 



ingredients
2/3 cup granulated sugar , plus 2 tbsp for the topping
3 eggs
1/4 cup oil 
1/4 cup yogurt/creme fraiche
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 cup plain white flour
2 tbsp Birds custard powder (or cornflour if you don't have any)
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1.5 cups rhubarb - chopped in about 1/2 cm dice

method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F/gas 4/177 degrees C. Grease/line a 8 inch cake tin or loaf tin (I used a 12 x 4 1/2 inch loaf tin)
Mix together eggs and 2/3 cup of sugar for a few minutes until light/foamy
Add the yogurt, oil and vanilla extract and mix well 
Stir in flour, custard powder (or cornflour), baking powder and salt and mix to combine
Pour into your prepared cake/loaf tin
Spread the diced rhubarb on the top of the cake batter and sprinkle with 2 tbsp sugar
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden, and an inserted skewer comes out clean
Leave to cool in the tin before serving in slices
