Recipe: Rhubarb Meringue Cake
|300 g||Flour (We used einkorn wholemeal flour)|
|1 Pck.||Vanilla sugar|
|50 g||Almonds sliced|
|5-6 Rods||Rhubarb (depending on size)|
|Strawberries for decoration|
Put the einkorn flour in a bowl and add the cold butter in small pieces
Add 100 g sugar and 1 egg yolk
Knead everything with the dough hook. Knead only until all the ingredients are mixed.
Cover the dough and let it rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour
Pull the threads out of the rhubarb from below and above with a small knife and cut into small pieces
Slightly brown the flaked almonds in the pan (do not add fat)
Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan oven).
Roll out the shortcrust pastry between two foils to a thickness of approx. 5 mm and place in a greased springform pan, pulling up approx. 2-3 cm at the edge. For easier handling: Clamp the baking paper in the springform pan so only the edge needs to be greased
Scatter the roasted almonds over the cake base
Scatter the rhubarb pieces on top and sprinkle with the vanilla sugar
Bake the cake for about 30 minutes
Meanwhile, make the meringue
Beat the egg whites at the highest level and gradually stir in 150 g of sugar
When the meringue is stiff, spread it over the baked cake
Let the oven cool down to 100-150 °C
Bake the cake with the meringue in the oven again for about 30 minutes. To get the meringue nice and crispy, stick a wooden spoon or tea towel in the oven door so that the moisture can escape
For the optics, the meringue can still be flamed
Depending on your wishes, you can vary the meringue. If you like it crispy, you should choose a lower temperature of 80-100 °C and dry in the oven for longer. If you like it lightly browned and soft, you can bake it faster at a higher temperature of 150 °C
Marinate the strawberries with white balsamic vinegar and icing sugar and serve with the cooled cake
