These delicious Rhubarb and White Chocolate cake bars are an indulgent family treat at this time of year and are lovely served with custard too. The cake bars are filled with chunky pieces of white chocolate and stewed rhubarb and with the addition of ground almonds the flavours are delicious.

Rhubarb season starts around February in the supermarkets but in the garden its around April / May time. I love stewed rhubarb and have some delicious recipes on my website for using it. Most of them of a sweet nature.

If you like the sound fo this delicious recipe you may also enjoy the following rhubarb recipes from my Youtube channel. They are all delicious recipes to cook up in Spring time. I love the Scottish rhubarb crumble bars using deliciosu Scottish oats and the Scottish Oaty Rhubarb Crumble recipe. The crumble is lovely served with cream or custard.

Tips for making this recipe:

  • keep the white chocolate pieces chunky as they hold a lovely creamy texture in the cake after it is cooked if you do so. Chop up a wee handful extra of white chocolate pieces to scatter over the top of the cake before cooking for extra white chocolate creaminess.
  • KMake sure teh rhubarb still holds a bit of testure before adding it to the cake you don’t want it too mushy.
  • If you have pieces of cake leftover warm them up in the oven and serve them with warm custard. Don’t waste any of this deliciosu cake its sooo good. You could also try freezing a few extra pieces if you need to.
  • Stew up a few extra chunks of rhubarb to use as a pretty topping on your cake.
  • You don’t have to add the icing or rhubarb on the top and could serve the cake straight away warm after the oven if you want to.
