Yum : Rhubarb & Cinnamon Cake

I promise I will bring you a savoury recipe soon, but this cake is so scrumptious.  I came across this recipe when I guided for The Bay of Fires Walk, and we regularly made it for our guests.  They loved, and you will too:

Rhubarb and Cinnamon Cake

  • 60g butter – softened
  • 380g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bi-carbonate soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 500g rhubarb – sliced into 2cm pieces
  • Rind of 1 lemon
  • 250 ml sour cream
  • 80 g brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Beat butter with brown sugar
  • Add eggs and vanilla
  • Stir in sifted flour, soda, salt and cinnamon.  Add rhubarb, rind and sour cream.
  • Stir with wooden spoon, then spoon into a buttered and floured 22cm round cake tin (or I use loaf tins).
  • Sprinkle with the extra brown sugar and cinnamon
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180c for 50 – 60 minutes.
  • Serve with whipped cream and dusted icing sugar.

You won’t be able to stop at one piece! xx
