Wash rhubarb and peel if tough and stringy. Dice rhubarb and distribute on the bottom of a silicone baking tin. You can also us a regular spring form tin and line with greaseproof paper.
Sprinkle rhubarb with sugar and set to one side till it has drawn some juice.
Meanwhile preheat oven to 160 C / Gas 3.
In a bowl mix all the ingredients for the base and beat until smooth. Spread the rhubarb in the prepared tin and top with the mixture. Even it out with a spatula.
Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes. Turn cake upside down to unmould onto a cake plate. (If using a springform pan, remove the rim first, then gently pull off the paper after unmoulding).
