Father’s Day bakes made with seasonal rhubarb

Yet there are so many other creative ways of cooking and baking with this versatile ingredient. Lost in Food has created a sublime looking Rhubarb & Ginger Clafoutis and Only Crumbs Remain has made these truly delightful Rhubarb & Strawberry Meringue Cupcakes .
