I dont cook cakes a lot, do I? I came to the conclusion that I needed to make a difference, so I cooked my rhubarb in the manner of a tarte Tatin. I got the idea for this dish from a recipe that I read online (I believe it was on Saveur), but I adapted it so that it is vegan and gluten-free. Hoping you gon enjoy it!

Time required for preparation: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 45 minutes

  • 1 pound of organic rhubarb cut in 1″ pieces
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) plus 4 tbsp (60ml) of vegan butter
  • 1 cup (250ml) of organic cane sugar
  • 2 tbsp. (30ml) of vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. (30ml) of organic grounded flax seeds
  • 6 tbsp. (90ml) of water
  • Rhubarb1 1/4 organic rice flour
  • 3/4 potato starch

  • 2 tsp. (10ml) of baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. xantan gum
  • 1/3 cup (83ml) of almond milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 375º.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flax seeds and the water. Set it aside for 10 minutes.
  3. In a 9″ cast-iron-skillet, mix the butter, 1/2 cup (125ml) of sugar, the rhubarb and the vanilla and cook it for 10 minutes or when they get tender.
  4. In the meantime, in a bowl, put the rice flour, the potato starch, the almond flour, the baking powder, the xanthan gum and the salt. Add in the butter and mix it with your hand or with a knife. Then add the almond milk and the flax seeds mix and mix it well.
  5. Put the dough in your skillet over the rhubarb with a spoon and spread it.
  6. Put it in the oven for 35 minutes.
  7. When you remove it from the oven, set it aside for 5 minutes. Then take a plate, put it over your skillet and flip it on your plate.

Once again, many thanks for sharing this recipe! Not only did I (really) like it, but so did my hubby.

I appreciate you sharing this recipe. It is quite tasty, and we will most certainly prepare it again in the future.

Fantastic! The almond flour crust was excellent, and the rhubarb was deliciously tender and sugary. We are really grateful that you have shared this remarkable recipe with us.

I really appreciate your help. The crust made with almond meal both smells and looks like it’s packed with flavor and crunch. Cannot wait to put it to the test!

The crust is delicious, and the rhubarb has just the right amount of tang. Even my two-year-old daughter enjoyed the snack that I provided for her late at night.

And, just a little message before I officially say my goodbyes to all of you: You are one thousand, no, one million, no, one billion, no, one billion times more great, pleasant, and fantastic than any of these recipes. Love you, love you all!
