PEI Liquor - Celebrate Spring 2020

In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the remaining 1 cup butter, the white sugar and the lemon zest. Beat together on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Add the vanilla and mix well. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the sour cream, then the lemon juice. (It’s O.K. if the mixture looks curdled.) With the mixer set to low speed, add the flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, until well combined. Scrape down the mixer bowl in between the additions. Pour the rhubarb mixture into the prepared cake pan, then spoon in the batter so it covers all of the rhubarb. Smooth out the top. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, or until the top of the cake is firm to touch and a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out without any large, moist crumbs. Place the pan on a wire rack, and cool for 15 minutes. Run a knife around the cake, place a plate on top of the pan and turn it upside-down. Release the cake from the pan while still warm or else it will stick.

Directions Make the Rhubarb syrup: combine everything for the syrup in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Reduce heat to low and then cook, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour. Strain the mixture through a mesh strainer into a bowl and press the pulp with a wooden spoon to squeeze out any excess moisture. Discard the pulp and let the liquid cool to room temperature before using. To make the punch, measure out 2 cups of rhubarb syrup into a large pitcher full of ice. Add the moon- shine and apple slices, then stir well to combine. Pour in the soda and stir again, then serve in tall glasses filled with ice and garnished with a rhubarb curl.
