    This is a very moist cake which makes a great dessert when rhubarb is in season. Serve with ice cream.

    Serves: 9 

    • 6 stalks rhubarb, cut into 1cm pieces
    • 1 punnet strawberries, hulled and sliced
    • 1 1/3 cups white sugar, divided
    • 1/3 cup butter, softened
    • 1 egg
    • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 1 1/4 cups (150g) plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cup buttermilk

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 20cm square baking dish.
    2. Place the rhubarb and strawberries into a bowl. Stir in 2/3 cup of sugar until fruit is coated. Pour into the prepared pan and spread out to cover the bottom. In a medium bowl, beat the remaining sugar with the butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in the egg, orange zest and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, bicarb soda and salt; stir into the batter, alternating with the buttermilk. Pour the batter over the fruit in the dish.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 55 minutes.
