Rhubarb Coffee Cake
Topped with delicious rhubarb, this cake is perfect as a dessert or snack. Even better, you can freeze it (if there is any left!) to enjoy later. Just remember to wrap the cake in plastic and then foil before you freeze. The cake can be frozen for up to three weeks.

Honey Rhubarb Cobbler
Honey and rhubarb combine to create this sweet, tangy cobbler. Use fresh or frozen rhubarb in this recipe—just remember to run the frozen rhubarb under cold water and drain well. While using a generic honey does the trick, a more flavourful honey such as wild fireweed honey or wildflower honey provides an even more delicious result.

Rhubarb Almond Crumble Squares
Change up classic apple crumble with this rhubarb and almond version! This dessert is perfect for a potluck, picnic or spring barbeque. Tip: Look for firm and vibrantly red stalks of rhubarb. Don’t forget to remove the leaves before cooking.

Rhubarb Ginger Yogurt Parfaits
This parfait is a perfect DIY treat for guests. Set out bowls of ginger, rhubarb topping and plain yogurt and built your own parfaits! Plain yogurt might make this dessert slightly tangy for some, so drizzle honey or maple syrup on top to sweeten things up, if desired. Paired with a blueberry scone, this dessert is a winner!
