Beauty & the Beast

Rhubarb cakes before they go into the oven

Pretty as a picture: rhubarb + ginger cake

"North Dakota" rhubarb cake: hiding a messy secret

"North Dakota" disaster

As you can see from the pictures, the trial bake-off was a mixed success.

The rhubarb + ginger cake recipe worked a treat and the cake is delish (if you like ginger, which I do).

I think something went wrong converting the American family recipe which uses US measurements into imperial measures. I also reduced the quantity of sugar significantly….

The cake smelled lovely but for some reason the mixure was too wet to bake properly.

As soon as I have gotten to the bottom of it – so to speak – I will write it about it here + publish both recipes.

In the meantime, feast your eyes on the pictures!
