Rhubarb Custard Cake

This cake is inspired by a sunny afternoon in my friend Nadine’s garden. Nadine had just had her baby girl, and I was visiting her after spending one month in Tokyo, filming my Anne’s Asian Adventures TV show. As we sat in the garden, Nadine’s mum walked over from the neighbouring house, with a cake in hand. It was the first bite of her rhubarb custard cake that made me instantly feel home again. The tangy taste of rhubarb combined with creamy custard reminded me of how much I would miss home if I were to live in Asia for good. So, thanks to Nadine’s mum, Christel, for letting me adapt her cake recipe!
