75


You must, simply must, make this cake. If you lived close by I'd say you must come and taste this cake with a cup of tea, at mine, but failing that, you must make your own.

The recipe came from Honey and Jam and it's a good one. I always hold my breath when using this cake tin as there have been as many cakes that haven't wanted to come out as those that just slid on out. Luckily today very generous greasing of the tin meant this was a success.

Can you believe I've never eaten rhubarb? I've always meant to but as Geoff has an aversion (he grew up being served extremely overstewed rhubarb on icecream) I've just never got around to it. After seeing this recipe and then yesterday buying rhubarb at the shops, how could I not? I used lime instead of lemon and normal full cream rather than butter milk, oh and I cut back the sugar by 1/2 a cup as I find some US recipes VERY sweet.

I think even Geoff will like this one!
