This rhubarb tea cake is easy to make and is a perfect afternoon tea treat!
Lately it seems like I’ve been baking the same old things again, and again, and again.
I used to make this easy rhubarb tea cake a lot before we had kids, and I remembered how good it was to eat it straight from the oven, still warm with a dollop of cream or yogurt.
It’s time this recipe was brought back into circulation and given a new lease of life!
It’s a simple tea cake recipe with cooked rhubarb added to the mixture. The rhubarb makes this cake lovely a moist as well as adding a sweet tang!
You also use pieces of rhubarb to decorate the top of the cake, and the kids will love making designs to decorate the top.
You could also make this tea cake with apples or plums, or even nectarines or peaches in summer. Or use a combination of apple and rhubarb, for a delicious change.

I love to cook with rhubarb, it has such a great colour, and it grows like a weed in our garden. In winter time when there is not much else growing I can always count on the rhubarb for some extra colour and flavour!
