Buttery rhubarb cherry cake
Almost exactly 3 years ago, I did not even know that any rhubarb even exists and what it exactly is.
With the move to the countryside and my little cooking delusion, I was also able to get to know this wonderful vegetable.
Rhubarb ... the vegetable that is kept for fruit
I know, everyone would first rhubarb spontaneously to fruit count, as it is mainly processed into desserts such as cakes, liqueurs, jam, syrup and other things. In fact, the rhubarb is botanically seen the vegetables assigned, because not the fruit stand, but the stems are eaten. By now I know a lot about rhubarb and I can proudly say that it grows in my garden and I have already tried countless recipes with it. As food, only the stems are processed into delicious foods. Because of the inedibility the huge leaves are thrown away mostly. I thought it was a pity and began to research in books and on the Internet, what can be done with the leaves. I found it and tried it immediately. Rhubarb leaves can be obtained e.g. excellent as a plant fertilizer use. How exactly is it possible to read soon on Lucinalife in the category garden.
As a real "countrywoman" you also like to read rural newspapers and magazines and let yourself be inspired by the beautiful pictures, the delicious recipes and so on. As I am browsing magazine in my rocking chair with relish during a coffee break on our terrace by the wonderful "my beautiful country house" (click) magazine, I discovered a cake, which appealed to me very much.
For several days I already thought about what I would conjure up from my rhubarb this year. At the same moment, my neighbor Maria came with a bucket full of cherries from her sister Magda - there it was already decided for me: I had read at the dear Patricia, Adventure biscuit (click), on the marmalade combination cherry rhubarb (click). Yes, I could make exactly this jam, but first I wanted to bake a cake. Why use this combination only in jam? I was back for a wonderful cake fragrance that runs through the house and I was particularly keen to use my vintage kitchen scales on the balcony in this sunny weather. So this rhubarb-cherry-buttermilk cake has emerged. The recipe of "My beautiful country house" (click) I have just changed a bit to my taste. At this point a big thank you for this tasty inspiration. The most delicious I have found this butter-cream-cast - the missed this cake a very special touch. This is now a cake, which is on top of my popularity scale. But now for the recipe.

But this is different from oven to oven.
