rhubarb cake with pistachios_bearbeitet-1

this recipe has a special relation with me as it is from a magazine that disappeared already twice for some time. so there was one rhubarb season when i was unable to bake it and feared that we have accidentially thrown the magazine away. but now it will be saved in the digital now for future seasons.

the recipe is from the german magazine lust auf genuss – the nordic summer kitchen volume, where you can discover many delicious things such as this finnish rhubarb cake. while flipping through the pages i got caught by a rhubarb chutney (which i planned to cook anyway these days) with fried herring, köttbullar – swedish meatballs – with gooseberries chutney and a swedish midsummer cake which sounds really good for all the berries that are getting ripe right now.

so let’s start a little nordic food journey with this very delicious rhubarb cake with pistachios from finnland.
