German Rhubarb Cake with Meringue
The recipe for this German rhubarb cake with meringue topping was given to me by my best friend’s mom, Frau Schubing, while I still went to Gymnasium in Germany which was quite a few years ago. I remember scribbling down the recipe on an old envelope that I still own and which survived all the moves and even made it to the US with me. Frau Schubing and also my best friend Gaby are fantastic bakers and cooks. You will never leave their houses without being invited to sit down and join a family meal. If you are short on time you will be offered coffee and cake and to visit just for a little while. There is always a fresh baked cake in their kitchens waiting to be shared with friends and family.
In this cake the sour note of the rhubarb is perfectly complemented by the sweet meringue. It is sitting on a delicious crust containing roasted almonds. What else do you need?
I have been baking this German rhubarb cake with meringue topping during rhubarb season ever since. It is my husband’s absolute favorite and he requests it every year for his birthday.
Don’t miss out on baking this German rhubarb cake with meringue topping. It is out of this world!
