We were hosted this weekend by the lovely Rhubarb Shed Cafe off Manor Lane, Sheffield. 4 bakers produced 4 totally different interpretations of the theme. All yummy !
Above is my rhubarb and custard cake. I roasted the rhubarb with sugar in advance , let it cool and drained off the syrup to use with the cake later. The recipe was from the Good Food Magazine. The all in one cake mix includes ready made custard, and I layered the rhubarb & blobs of custard into the mix before baking. Serve warm.
Annes Rhubarb, apple and ginger cake was made with crystallised ginger, golden syrup, lots of apples and rhubarb. It was from the BBC Good food website.
Danis Apple Honey & Ginger was made with mostly honey in an all in one batter. She used powdered ginger and this gave a lovely parkin type sticky ginger taste. It had a honey glaze, and was from Waitrose recipe cards.
Claire made a Rhubarb and Ginger cake , with 400g of homegrown rhubarb plus lots of cinnamon, topped with almonds.
The cafe has a large car park & is next to the Art studios at Manor Oaks . They do afternoon teas too ! We will be returning.
