Good texture, interesting flavor. The cardamom over-powers the rhubarb flavor, if I make again I will cut the cardamom in half.
Love these scones! The rhubarb from my CSA is thin and green so perfect for these where the little green bits are beautiful. The hint of cardamom makes them so tasty. To go with them I used the extra rhubarb to make a quick sauce (on this site as well).
These are delicious. They’re not hard to make. I put two tablespoons of sugar on the chopped rhubarb to cut the sourness.
I have an abundance of rhubarb at this time every year thanks to the previous owner of the office building I purchased planting several plants. I made this recipe and brought the scones to work and now my assistants ask for this every year. When the rhubarb starts ripening they ask if it is scone time yet. These scones are softer and not hard and crumbly - which is how I prefer my scones. I use turbinado sugar on the top as an offset to the tart of the rhubarb in the filling, but you could also do a powdered sugar glaze if you wanted to sweeten them up. Scones are not meant to be overly sweet, but you could add a bit more sugar if you wanted them sweeter.

These are awesome, and the perfect size -- not too big. The cardamom and rhubarb play so well together. Was worried I wouldn't be able to find whole wheat pastry flour, but there it was in the baking aisle. It even comes in small bags, so you don't have to buy a ton for one recipe. Next time, I'm increasing the rhubarb to two cups, but will probably add a little more sugar, too.
Nice and tender with a slight cardamom flavor. I took these to a church potluck and people were tricked into eating and enjoying them thinking they contained strawberries! They were surprised to learn the truth! This was a good way to use up my extra rhubarb. Actually I increased the amount of rhubarb and it was still good.
Great recipe! Love the tart little bites of rhubarb.
This recipe is a keeper, thank you for sharing. :)
