Is there something extra indicative of the shift to hotter climate than the looks of rhubarb baked items and desserts? As a result of it is not a staple in every single place, at any time when I do catch a glimpse of the pink and inexperienced stalks, I smile with a little bit of gratitude and a whole lot of pleasure. And there is not any higher strategy to have fun its magnificence than with Aran Goyoaga’s Rhubarb Meringue Cake.
This recipe took inspiration from Aran’s authentic meringue cake in her newest cookbook, Canelle et Vanille Bakes Easy: A New Approach to Bake Gluten-Free, The difference pairs layers of fork-tender cake with crunchy sliced almonds. I contemplate myself fortunate to have been served a slice (or two) after we visited Aran for lunch at her Seattle craftsman house. Beneath, Aran shares somewhat perception into how the magic of this Rhubarb Meringue Cake comes collectively.
“On this model, I bake the cake in two layers and add rhubarb compote and cream within the middle. The compote could be made two days upfront, however I actually advocate baking the cake the identical day you intend to serve it.”
