When I think of Rhubarb and Custard, I always think of the hard boiled sweets which I used to love when I was little, so delicious, now as I’ve grown older, my taste has changed. I don’t really have many sweets but mainly chocolate. I randomly brought some rhubarb not sure why, lol and the first thing I thought to make was rhubarb crumble but then I thought about those sweets again and wondered if there is a cake recipe and there was.
I wasn’t sure how this cake would turn out, rhubarb can be quite tart but custard is overly sweet so you would think the two would balance each other out. I was half expecting the cake to be reminiscent of those sweets, sweet but slightly tart.
This cake, had a long bake as you can imagine it has rhubarb in, it was supposed to take 1 hour but in the end it took over 1h30!!!!!!!! I was like, this is just not right! The cake itself was not great, unfortunately, I didn’t like the taste, or lack of it. I couldn’t taste the rhubarb or the custard although the texture was nice and soft. I was a bit disappointed as it totally didn’t meet my expectations :( oh well, my dad liked it though on the bright side.
