The day after I’ve seen the coconut flour on the shelf of that shop, I couldn’t think of something else.
I’ve already coveted expensive nice pair of shoes, bag, or garment; but food, not really. And especially not a flour. At least until that day.
It’s the smell that stuck in my mind.
So, I was just happy when I finally could smell it in my own cupboard.

Not long after, a series of baked goods using this flour followed, including those muffins

Sinemage Rhubarb Cake Coconut Flour

Because this cake is based and adapted from this clafoutis recipe, the texture is dense, rich and pudding-like.

With Spring now on, vivid rhubarb stalks grace every market stall. I have a soft spot for this vegetable. Usually I make a jar or two of compote.
This time, I gently stewed it with palm sugar, bringing a tangy and colourful addition to the cake.

In my plate or outside, I just love Spring colours…
So I’ll be back soon, with captures of the blooming time !

Coconut and Rhubarb Cake (makes 3 cakes of 12cm diameter or one of 24cm diameter)

80g coconut flour
250ml coconut cream
3 eggs
70g palm sugar (about one block) finely grated
1 pinch of salt

3-4 rhubarb stalks, cut in 1cm pieces
60g palm sugar

Preheat oven to 190°C. In a bowl, mix together coconut flour, grated palm sugar and salt. Add eggs, one by one, mixing after each addition. Pour in coconut cream and mix to have a smooth batter. Scoop equally the batter in tins (greased if necessary). Bake for about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and wait 5 minutes before turning out of the tins and allow to cool upside down on a wire rack.

In large and shallow saucepan, over a low fire, cook lid on, rhubarb pieces and palm sugar for 15-20 mintutes or until just soft.
Lay rhubarb pieces on top of each cake, drizzle with remaining syrup and serve.
