German(?) rhubarb cake question

summertime Jun 13, 2005 02:17 AM

A German neighbour used to make a very simple and very good rhubarb cake. I remember it had a layer of cake batter, then a layer of cut-up rhubarb, and then, where one would often put streusel, she had a layer of custard-like kind (it had eggs and sugar, but I do not remember if anything else). Everything was assembled at once, and then baked. I wrote the recipe down and seems to have lost it.

Has anyone run across a cake recipe with the "custard" like topping I am describing? I can concoct a cake base, but I would like to get some idea of what goes in the topping? (I do not remember if it had whole eggs, or just yolks?).

Thank you in advance

    It sounds like maybe it could be a rhubarb kuchen, a German cake that has many incarnations, including one with a custard type topping. If you Google "rhubarb custard kuchen" you may come up with something useful.
