Sunita Bhuyan
Fresh stalks of rhubarb were combined with the flavours of almond and white chocolate to give a combination of taste explosions in every spoonful.

Servings 16 slices


  • 125 gms rhubarb, chopped into small pieces
  • 150 gms white chocolate, chopped or broken into small pieces
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup +3 tbsp plain whole wheat flour (I used atta)
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cup almond flakes


  • Pre heat the oven at 180 deg C and line an 8 inch round baking pan (I used foil).
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour and ground almonds and keep aside.
  • In another bowl, add the white chocolate and vegetable oil and melt together. Keep aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the eggs and caster sugar till pale and frothy.
  • Tip in the chocolate mixture and fold in.
  • Fold in the vanilla extract.
  • Tip in the flour mixture and fold in till everything comes together. Fold in gently and do not over mix. The batter will be quite thick.
  • Transfer the batter into the lined baking pan and smooth the top.
  • Arrange the rhubarb pieces on the top in a single layer.
  • Sprinkle the almond flakes on top.
  • Place the pan in the centre of the pre heated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or till a toothpick inserted through the centre of the cake comes out clean (see notes below).
  • Place the pan on a wire rack for a few minutes. Then remove the foil carefully and cool completely before slicing and serving.
  • Store any leftovers in an air tight container. But do use it up quickly.



  • Keep an eye on the cake towards the last few minutes, especially after 30 minutes. The cake needs to come out as soon as a toothpick inserted through the centre comes out clean. It will over bake if you leave it longer in the oven. Check frequently in these last few minutes.
