Simple rhubarb cake

Sometimes you crave something simple. Something like this cake. It doesn't require any special ingredients, nor special skills - it's just simple and tasty. And even more, if rhubarb is not your thing or you just feel like trying something else, you can easily swap it for any fruit - it's gonna work just as well.

Ingredients for 20x30cm cake tin:
5 eggs, yolks and whites separately
250g unsalted butter, in room temperature
pinch of salt
1 cup sugar
2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
 3-4 stakes rhubarb, peeled and chopped in pieces
icing sugar for dusting

Beat butter with sugar in a bowl until it's light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, mixing well after each. Add sifted flour mixed with baking powder, mix until it's well incorporated. In a separate bowl whip egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form. Fold them in the batter, trying not to overmix. Grease form and/or line with baking paper, spread mixture evenly and arrange rhubarb pieces on top. Bake in 200C for 45 minutes, until golden brown and pick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Dust with icing sugar.
Enjoy :-)
