Rhubarb Crumble Cake

I was given a taste of a home baked cake. I had to have the recipe.. I am a person that doesn't have a sweet tooth and trying to find the right cake, desert and slices, is hard to find with  just the right amount of sweetness. This cake is a little of both, sweet but not too sweet. I love rhubarb and I love red Doris plums. both are sour but with a bit of a  sweet cake underneath and  with a little of my Hubbys homemade Ice-cream it hit the right spots for me. 

Prep Time 15 mins 
Cook Time : 50-60 mins
Serves 8-10 


140 grams soften butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 cup of plain yoghut
3/4 cups plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 stalks of rhubarb thinly slices or 190 grams of mix's berry's or your choice of fruit. 
1 tin of Black Doris Plums 

First Time I made this, it was Apple and Plums 


1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup silvered almonds or chopped walnuts
4 Tbsp flour
1 tsp cinnamon
60 grams of melted butter

Preheat oven to 180 c . Grease a 25 cm round spring form tin and line the base with baking paper. 

Beat butter and sugar together until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Beat in yoghurt then add dry ingredients and stir gently to just combine. (mixture will be a thick consistency). Spread in grease tin and sprinkle rhubarb and plums. Then add topping mixture on top. 

Bake until golden brown and skewer comes out clean for 50-60 

Serve this with some Vanilla Ice Cream or custard. 

This cake is nice warm or cold . But I prefer it Warm . 

Please have a go at this and you will be impressed. Another desert added to my list of yummies .
