Rhubarb Cake RECIPE: Laurent Mariotte soft pie, ideal as a substitute for pies

Rhubarb season! And instead of timeless cakes, we melt into Laurent Mariotte’s super-gourmet cake, which requires only 7 ingredients and 30 minutes of preparation.

Laurent Mariotte sets our plate for summer time! After fragrant tomato chan and fragrant edamame salad, renowned food writer honors a seasonal vegetable that is cooked like a fruit: rhubarb. If we have already managed to open its express recipe in Small dishes in balancefood show TF1, Laurent Mariotte also publishes it on his website so that we can reproduce it at home whenever we want. A real generous!
