    I love rhubarb cakes but I like to make them slightly spicy with nutmeg and cinnamon in the batter and topping.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 1 1/4 cups (155g) plain flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 130g butter
    • 1 cup (200g) white sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
    • 6 stalks rhubarb, chopped
    • 1/4 cup (60g) brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 3/4 cup (80g) slivered almonds

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and flour a 20x30cm pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon mixed spice and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk. Spread batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle the chopped rhubarb over the batter. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and slivered almonds. Sprinkle over top.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly tapped. Serve warm or cold.
