I’ve done a fair amount of rhubarb experimenting lately, and had nothing to show for it until now, because honestly, everything came out underwhelming. Underwhelming and, in the case of pickled rhubarb — so promising on a pork schnitzel sandwich — gross as hell.

A sweet and tart snack cake perfect for any time.
