Rhubarb Ginger Cake

Rhubarb Ginger CakeI don’t really like rhubarb.  As a child, stewed rhubarb was put in front of me, and I was expected to eat it.    And I did.  Because I ate what was served.  Period.

But………as an ingredient, rhubarb is awesome.  Like in this cake.

I chopped some freshly picked rhubarb, made a batter, added some grated ginger and orange rind, and it became a cake!  And, I like it!
