Spelt And Rhubarb Cake.

Recipes: The spell of spelt - Telegraph:
Spelt's nutty flavour goes well with rhubarb.
Champagne rhubarb from Yorkshire is at its prime right now, so snap it up while you can.
It's delicious (look out for Fergus Henderson's poached rhubarb recipe in Weekend in a couple of weeks' time) and you'll be supporting growers struggling to survive the competition from Dutch imports.

5oz/140g butter
7oz/200g soft brown sugar
2 eggs
4 pieces of stem ginger in syrup, chopped
7oz/200g spelt flour
2 tsp baking powder
14oz/400g slender rhubarb stems
Caster sugar to finish

Heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4.
Line a cake tin about 7inx11in/17cmx27cm with baking parchment.
Melt the butter and stir in the soft brown sugar.
Allow to cool slightly, then mix in the eggs, ginger, flour and baking powder.
Scrape the mixture into the lined tin and spread out.
Trim the rhubarb to fit the tin lengthways and lay over the top of the mixture, packing in as many stems as you can.
Bake for 35-45 minutes, until the cake is risen, golden and cooked through.
Brush with some syrup from the ginger jar, dredge well with caster sugar and allow to cool in the tin.
