rhubarb chocolate cake

rhubarb chocolate cake

A moist, fruity chocolate cake - a feast for summer! My colleague Tanja from the office kindly shared this great recipe with me. 


- 300g rhubarb

- 100g butter

- 130g sugar

- 100g black chocolate

- 200g flour

- 0.5 TS baking powder

- 1 sachet vanilla sugar or liquid

- a pinch of salt

- icing sugar for decoration



Peel the rhubarb and cut into chunks of about 2x2 cm (not too small as they will get lost in the cake).

Mix in a bowl the butter, eggs, salt, sugar and vanilla sugar and stir for three minutes until foamy. 

Add the flour and baking powder (just a little bit!) and stir again until smooth. Now add the chocolate (cut into small cubes with a big knife) and the rhubarb and mix well. 

Pour into a buttered cake form and bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees. 

Sprinkle the icing sugar on top and enjoy!

This cake can also be baked in a glass jar, just reduce the baking time to about 35 minutes.
