  • For the crumble: Mix the ingredients together and knead into coarse crumble with your fingers.
  • For the vanilla cream: bring the milk and cream to the boil. Beat the sugar and egg yolks and fold in the cornstarch. When the milk and cream mixture is boiling, take it off the stove, stir in the egg mixture, put the saucepan back on the stove and, on the lowest setting and stir continuously, heat the mixture until it has a pudding-like consistency. Once the consistency has been reached, the mixture can be poured onto the base, spread the rhubarb evenly over it and top it with the crumble.
  • Now bake the cake at 180 ° C for about 40 minutes.
  • 7th TIP: Since there are now 4 x egg whites, you can make meringue out of it, I have also set the recipe for this.
