My Beltane Rhubarb Cake is a Winner!!

Posted on

I won a pound of local rhubarb from WPSU Local Food Journey for my vegan Beltane Rhubarb Cake recipe (click link for the award winning recipe).


If you aren’t into cake…

Jim found me another recipe that I also tried so I might as well paste it here since it is probably what I am going to make with the rhubarb I won. I will try to post a photo of it later, it was really tasty!

rhubarb & ginger crumb bars
makes about 24 bars

for the dough:

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

Zest of one lemon

1 cup cold Earth Balance sitcks

1 portion EnerG egg replacer

for the filling:

4 cups rhubarb, sliced into 1/2″ pieces

2 Tablespoons ginger, finely chopped

Juice of one lemon

1/2 cup sugar

4 teaspoons cornstarch

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 inch pan.
 – To make the dough: In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, and baking powder. Mix in salt and lemon zest. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend in the Earth Balance and egg replacer. The dough will be crumbly. Pat half of the dough into the prepared pan.
 – To make the filling: In another bowl, stir together the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice. Gently mix in the rhubarb and ginger. Sprinkle the rhubarb mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble remaining dough over the rhubarb layer.
3 – 
Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until top is slightly brown. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

  1. Congratulations! I made your non-vegan version — what a delightful treat! We have a rhubarb patch that comes up unbidden in the middle of the yard every spring, the remnant of long-past glory days here at the farm. This was the first I’d used it and my family was quite impressed at my resourcefulness. My 12yo daughter (who stood over me as I made it, tossing out many skeptical comments about “celery cake”) ate more than anyone. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing, and great job on the award.
