Nutritional values

Rhubarb helps to protect the body cells from free radicals and thus has a positive effect on the immune system. Almonds are little power packs, because they shine with minerals such as calcium and iron for bones as well as blood formation.

Unfortunately, rhubarb is not in season all year round, but you still don't have to do without this delicious cake: Simply replace the sour stalks with seasonal fruit! In summer, for example, cherries or raspberries fit perfectly, in autumn and winter you can cover the dough with pear or apple slices. This way you won't get bored!
