About this recipe:This fruity rhubarb cake is complimented by the gentle whispers of ginger adding a fun and spicy element to the cake. Serve warm or cold with some fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Preheat the oven to 160 C / Gas 2/3 and grease and line a deep 20cm cake tin with baking parchment.
In a large mixing bowl beat together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time until the mixture is thick and creamy then mix in the almond extract.
Into a separate bowl, sift in the flour then add the baking powder, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet and beat until smooth. Mix in the rhubarb. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and smooth the top.
Bake in the preheated oven for 90 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin.
To serve, remove from the tin using the baking parchment to help you, then transfer to a serving plate. Slice and serve.
