1orange (the peel and the juice)

1 pinch ofcinnamon
Anleitung / Instructions
Preheat the oven to 165° C top and bottom heat.
Firstly, clean the rhubarb - remove the leaves, wash the stalks and, if necessary, peel. Depending on your pattern, cut into smaller or larger pieces. With more complicated patterns, you can put the pieces into the cake tin, design your cake this way and then remove them again. For the perfectionists: take a photo :) Remove the seeds from the cardamom pods and set them aside.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the brown sugar, half of the orange juice and peel, the cardamom seeds, the ginger and the salt. Heat and stir until the sugar dissolves completely and the mixture throws bubbles at the edges.
Pour the sugar mixture into the cake tin and place the rhubarb pieces as planned in step 2. Set aside while preparing the cake dough.
In a small bowl, mix the flour, the ground almonds and the baking powder with the salt and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the butter with the sugar until foamy. Stir in the eggs one by one and scrape the dough from the edge again and again with a scraper. Add the remaining orange juice, orange peel and yoghurt and stir until a smooth, homogeneous dough is obtained.
Carefully and evenly spread the cake dough onto the rhubarb pieces and smooth it down.
Bake in a preheated oven for about 70 minutes. Using a skewer, test if the cake is done - in case the dough turns too brown, cover with a foil during the baking process.
Once the cake is ready, remove from the oven. Let it cool for 5 minutes and release the dough from the edge of the cake pan with a sharp knife. Cover with a plate and turn the cake tin over - it may take a few minutes for the cake to dissolve from the bottom of the mold.
Allow to cool completely and serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or simply just as it is.
