Rhubarb Rhubarb

This week we feel that we are much in need for some tea and wholesome cake-loving! Why not try making our Rhubarb and Apple Cake one cold and rainy June evening?
Ingredients
8 oz self raising flour
5 oz Demerara sugar
4 oz butter
2 small eggs, beaten
2 large cooking apples, peeled and chopped up roughly
1 tbsp white sugar
4 sticks of rhubarb, medium sized
100ml water
Pinch of salt
Whipped cream, as desired
Method
-       Heat oven to 180C
-       Prepare rhubarb sticks: peel and chop into cube-like pieces and put the water sugar and rhubarb into a pan together and gently heat until soft
-       Mix the dry ingredients into a bowl and rub in butter to make ‘breadcrumbs’
-       Add and mix in the chopped apple and beaten egg
-       In a well-greased oblong cake tin, grease with butter and lay greased grease paper
-       Put in half the cake mixture, then evenly add in the cooked rhubarb and put the second half of the cake mixture, spreading evenly on top
-       Sprinkle on Demerara sugar
-       Bake for 1 hour
