Rhubarb Sponge

Delicious pudding of rhubarb sponge with list of ingredients and cooking directions

This serves 4-6. Rhubarb sponge isn't an exclusive Scottish dish, but it's my favourite pudding that my mum and wife makes me. So it deserves a special mention! I love mine warm, served with vanilla ice-cream.

    I have published a book which tells the story of The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital which reveals her origins in the QAIMNS and where she meets a QA veteran of Afghanistan. She still walks her wards and tells her story by taking Scott Grey, a QARANC nurse, to the battlefields of World War One and beyond. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by CG Buswell. Each book will feature different Scottish food and a favourite meal. Read the first chapter for free.

    Taste Ye Back: Great Scots and the Food That Made Them describes the old Scottish practice by children who used to dip rhubarb sticks into bowls of white sugar, with many of the contributors wondering if this is why their generation have bad teeth and many fillings!
