Not quite what I expected
We've a good crop of rhubarb coming in the garden so for Zac's tonight I'd decided I'd try a new rhubarb cake. It didn't turn out quite as I anticipated ...It's a sponge base topped with rhubarb and covered in a crumble-type mixture. I expected the topping to stay more crumbly but maybe I put too much baking powder in my adapted version of the sponge. Making a larger cake than the recipe is intended for has its own difficulties. Doubling quantities is easy but adjusting temperature and timing is more complicated that you'd think.
