A lot of my favorite things are happening in the cake. 1. Rhubarb-gloriously tart harbinger of late spring/early summer. 2. Rose, specifically wild nantucket beach roses, obvi one of my favs and used in so many Fare Isle goodies. 3. Almonds, super-duper rich, buttery almond-nuttery nuts. (Ok I've completely lost it.)
So basically you should go, run, hurry and make this cake before rhubarb has vanished for the year. But if you cant find rhubarb where you are try this recipe with cherries or plums!
