The rhubarb season in full swing now, and I, like so many others right now, just have to take advantage of it. I myself, have no rhubarb in my garden, but I do have two nice neighbors who are more than happy to share their ..... and if you want to do a little more luxurious rhubarb dessert, this cake with meringue quilti is a much tastier alternative to the classic crumble. .... according to my taste, that is. Have a nice start of the week!

Cake base:
50 grams of butter
1 egg + 3 egg yolks
2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
400 grams of rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar
Meringue Quilt :
3 egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
Here's how: Melt the butter and let it cool for a little while. Beat 1 egg and 3 egg yolks until fluffy with 2 dl sugar. In a separate bowl, mix flour and baking powder thoroughly. Add the flour to the eggmixture,alternately with the melted butter . Clean the rhubarb and slice it in about 1 cm wide pieces . Have the batter into a greased and floured round bakingform of about 20 - 23cm in diameter. Spread the rhubarb pieces over cake batter and press down lightly in the batter. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and bake in the lower part of the oven for about 30 minutes at 175 degrees C. Meanwhile , make the meringue by whipping the egg whites stiff. Add the sugar a little at a time and continue whisking until you get a glossy meringue. Once the cake is baked, remove from the oven , spread with meringue on topp and bake for another 20 minutes so that the meringue gets a nice color . Let the cake cool in the bakingform before you put it on to a barrel. Serve warm , preferably with a little vanillacream. I like mix vanillacream with whipped cream. Very tasty!
