Rhubarb Pudding Cake

I received a fruit pudding cake recipe from our CSA farmer some years ago and I have made the cake every year when we received rhubarb. This has been my favorite rhubarb recipe. I veganized the original recipe and also made it gluten-free. If you like a moist cake, I think you will like this one.


Cooking spray oil
250 ml vegan plain yogurt (I used vanilla coconut yogurt.)
1 Tbsp chia seeds (or Egg Replacer for one egg)
3/4 cup natural sugar (I used coconut sugar)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour or rice flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups rhubarb, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick pieces


  1. In a small bowl, mix 1 Tbsp chia seeds and 3 Tbsp water and set aside for at least 15 minutes. Or use Egg Replacer for one egg.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C. Lightly coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the yogurt, chia seed mixture, sugar and vanilla.
  4. Add the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and mix well. Stir in the rhubarb slices.
  5. Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40 – 50 minutes. A cake tester should come out with just a few moist crumbs clinging to it.
  6. You can serve the cake warm (after cooling about 10 minutes) or cold. Don’t forget to infuse love before serving!
