Rhubarb and Orange sliceWith Summer on it’s way my rhubarb patch is in full swing!  Yay!  I had some oranges in the fruit bowl so decided to whip up a yummy rhubarb and orange slice.  It’s a delicious combination!

3/4 cup caster sugar

1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder

200g rhubarb finely diced rhubarb (about 1cm)


  • Preheat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F). Grease and line a 23cm square cake tin.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, beating after each one
  • Beat in the vanilla and zest
  • Sift in the flour and baking powder and mix in until mixture is smooth.
  • Spoon the mixture into the cake tin and smooth out flat with a palette knife.
