Totally worth the wait, I picked my first crop of rhubarb this evening.

I was really impressed with this recipe. I love anything with lemon in it anyway, so I was probably always going to be on to a winner with this cake, but still, it was so easy and made a really light, fluffy cake. I'm not the best baker in the world, and considering this was my first attempt at making it and I didn't balls-up, it's got to be an easy recipe.
I couldn't find poppy seeds anywhere round here, so missed those out, and just upped the quantities of ground almonds slightly to compensate. The icing didn't turn out quite like the pictures of Jamie's cake, but I did think the quantity of icing sugar seemed quite excessive for just a drizzle over the top. Besides, I prefer mine with a nice, thick dollop of icing over it!
It didn't stay like this for long!

I've got them on the windowsill in my bedroom at the moment, but not got a clue where they'll go when they outgrow their current position.
Outside, the strawberries are now getting beautifully ripe. The first berry was eaten today (before the dog discovered it!) but it looks like there are plenty more to come.
