  4. I like this use of turmeric since I don’t usually use it is sweet. And of course I love the roasted rhubarb as a side. And your new picture in the sidebar is beautiful – love the fresh pop of green color.

  5. I made it into a crumble 😀 Love the combinations you come up with! That turmeric cake is so beautifully vibrant!
