After visiting my parents garden we came home carrying an arm full of tender rhurbarb. And because we can not always eat oven roasted rhubarb I decided to use one half for a cake – while I roasted the other half in the oven (I can not get enough of oven roasted rhubarb).
The cake is a variation of my grandmothers “Ribiselkuchen” (Ribisel is dialect for Johannisbeere (red currants)). It is made of a shortcrust pastry and a filling made of whipped egg white, sugar, almonds and rhubarb slices. It is a classical and good mixture, a balanced mixture of sweet and sour, soft and crisp, just the perfect, delicious cake for Sunday afternoons.
