Why I Love This Recipe

This cake always makes me think of summer, even if it's January! When the berries and rhubarb are in season, this cake is a sweet and tart celebration of their flavors, but it can easily be done with frozen fruits any time of year! It is perfect with a cup of tea and some gossip ;)
