Baked rhubarb with french toast

Rhubarb lovers hands up!!!! I have a DELICIOUSSSS recipe for you! Sweet (but not too sweet!I promise!) breakfast with a kick of tangy flavour coming from this humble but extraordinary plant to celebrate the upcoming season and longer days! I AM SO EXCITED on this side of the screen!

I’m writing to you from my garden today, with my favourite ‘green flamingo’ tea in the hand, while warming my face in the early sun and listening to the twittering birds. I am happy to report that SPRING is in the air lovely people! Finally, it’s here! And with Spring – all it’s delicious produce!

I first learnt about the ‘forced rhubarb’ when I moved to England 12 years ago and straight away I feel in love with it’s gorgeous bright pink colour and it’s ‘sweeter’ taste. To this day, it has never stopped fascinating me how it’s grown – in darkened sheds away from natural light, harvested by flickering candlelight – originally forced to provide an extra fruit in the winter when fresh fruit was difficult to come by. Well, fruit? It’s is a vegetable really!

It tastes ‘fascinating’ too! Enjoy!

Ps. A little about the inspiration for this recipe: ever since I saw the french Toast + rhubarb combo on Pinterest sometime ago, I could not wait for the rhubarb season! Although this recipe here is very different to the one on Sasha’s blog, the idea for serving rhubarb with french toast was sparked by her gorgeous images!

    1. Thank you so much Ayla! If you’ve never tried it you might want to sprinkle it with extra sugar 🙂 lol it is tart! But I personally love it!

  2. I am jealous you have fresh rhubarb already. Won’t be here for at least a month. Can’t wait to try this recipe. The photos are so lovely.

    1. Forced rhubarb is very popular in this corner of the world, and it’s so nice to see it popping in the shops this time of the year. Thank you for the lovely words Cindy! Sending warm hugs x
