rhubarb and ginger polenta cake

Nothing irritates me more than inaccurate or unreliable recipes. Over the years, therefore, I've created a 'bank' of trustworthy writers whose recipes and cookbooks I use time and time again, and who I'd happily recommend to others

In more recent years, there are many food bloggers who have joined that bank. One of my latest 'finds' is the sage and amenable Carl Legge, who writes his stuff over at carllegge.com (and elsewhere).

I 'met' Carl on Twitter a few months ago, and have tried several of his recipes since. A short while ago, his rhubarb and polenta cake recipe caught my eye, and I've been keenly waiting for the first of the season's rhubarb so that I could give it a whirl.

That time happily came around this past weekend, so off to the kitchen I scampered. Five easy steps later, a big wedge of rhubarb cake was nestling down comfortably in my belly.

I heartily recommend it to you.

I love the idea of this cake - all the different textures make it sound delicious. Rhubarb in the veg box please! x

I love rhubarb but have a very limited repertoir of what to do with it. Next time I find it fresh at the farmer's market I'm going to give this a try. It sounds very interesting!
