Rhubarb & Ginger cakes with the Underground Cake Club

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.

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.
