Rhubarb and Custard Cake

It is a total classic and a very much well loved pudding. It’s one of my all time favourite recipes to make as it’s super easy, super scrumptious and packed full of classic gorgeous flavours we all know and love. I have always been a big fan of the humble custard tart and so combined with rhubarb it make sense that for me, it will be even more perfect. It’s less so of a sponge cake and very much more of a baked cheesecake in texture and flavour which is a bonus for me as baked cheesecake is one of my favourite desserts.
