Rhubarb Sponge Pudding

What better way to use rhubarb than in a pudding. It goes perfectly in a warm pudding that can be served with custard!

This recipe idea came from my Spiced Apple Pudding. I find that fruit and sponge are a perfect way to have the best of both worlds It pleases people that want pudding while pleasing the cake lovers too! This recipe is a fantastic way to use any fruit that is in season.

In this recipe I am using freshly harvested rhubarb from the garden. I have stewed the rhubarb as per my basic Stewed Rhubarb recipe.

This is what I did...

Rhubarb Sponge Pudding


500g Stewed rhubarb
100g butter
100g golden caster sugar
100g self raising flour
2 eggs
1/2tsp vanilla paste


Pre heat the oven to 180C

1 - Beat together the butter and caster sugar until light and creamy

2 - Gradually add the eggs along with a little flour to prevent curdling

3 - Mix in the remaining flour and vanilla paste until you have a smooth mixture

4 - Place the stewed rhubarb into a medium pie dish

5 - Spoon the cake mixture over the stewed rhubarb and place in the centre of the pre heated oven and bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until the sponge is thoroughly baked

Serve immediately with custard, cream, ice cream or even on its own.

  1. Great use for rhubarb and my hubby would love to have this with lashings of custard. Looks lovely

  2. This is exactly the sort of pudding I could do with having right now! It's currently raining and I feel a little chilly and need of some comfort food. I think for this I would like lashings of double cream. That sponges looks lovely and light too. Thanks for linking up to my Rhubarb #loveseasonalfood linky. I think I'm going to have to grow more rhubarb now as there are so many great recipes.

  5. I love sponge puddings and it is really cold here so I would love to have a serve of this - with custard!

  6. I love a sponge pudding - it reminds me of the type of desserts my mum used to make. We had puddings a few times a week when I was a child but my children are lucky if they get one when they're out! It's so easy so I know I should give it a go.
