Rhubarb Meringue Cake {Rhabarberkuchen} for #SundaySupper

First off Happy Sunday to all of you.  Whether it is Easter or Passover you are celebrating the #SundaySupper team has you covered today with 40+ recipes.  Our gracious host today is Alaiyo from over at the Pescetarian Journal.

We celebrate Easter and it is one of the girls favorite holidays; just like it was mine growing up.  Of course as a kid, just like my girlies,  it was the chocolate and Easter Basket treats that I was after.  I remember looking for it every year in my Oma & Opa's back yard; it always took me a good long time to find the big woven wicker basket in the yard.  We keep with this tradition, and have the girlies search  - weather permitting - in the yard, or in the house.  

Now what is Easter without great food?! We generally serve ham, asparagus, fruit salad, potatoes and - my personal favorite - Rhabarberkuchen.  Rhubarb the delicious tart spring fruit {it really is a vegetable} = spring to me; it is oh so delicious.  It is perfectly paired with strawberries, or vanilla pudding but also on it's own in a delicious Kuchen. Please let me introduce you to my Rhubarb Meringue Cake a traditional German cake; rhubarb covered with crunchy, sweet meringue….

The pictures did not quite turn out as planned, but don't let that keep you away from this delicious treat…
