Rhubarb Almond Cake

Rhubarb is ready for Spring picking or pulling or plucking. What do you call the harvesting of Rhubarb, anyway? Did you know that Rhubarb leaves are poisonous?

The recipe I picked to bake called for a pound of Rhubarb.

I got the recipe here.

BTW the rhubarb discolored my metal tart pan in an ugly way. I didn’t realize that would happen.

This is a post from a couple years ago but since my rhubarb is prolific again this year I’m reposting. This was a yummy recipe.

Rhubarb Almond Cake

Rhubarb is ready for it’s first Spring picking or pulling or plucking. What do you call the harvesting of Rhubarb, anyway? Did you know that Rhubarb leaves are poisonous? Funny story about that later…

After tasting it I would make it again. Now…who could I drop some slices off to?

Funny story from the mouth of our 3 year old grand, Addy. Her mother talked to her about Rhubarb leaves being poisonous but the stalks were not. In Addy’s mind she couldn’t separate those two thoughts. On Thursday when her dad got home from work he asked Addy, “What did you do today?” Her response was, “we made poisonous muffins for you!”
