  • Summary

    The key to this recipe's moist crumb? You guessed it: yogurt, which we used instead of milk once again. Emblazoned with thick pieces of rhubarb--in peak season in early spring--it's a next-level spring dessert. Temper the vegetable's sour notes by roasting it with sugar before baking, and add ground pistachios to the batter to unleash a sweet nuttiness.

    Ingredients

    • 1 stick plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
    • 2 cups plain whole-milk yogurt
    • 1 pound rhubarb, trimmed and cut crosswise into 3-inch pieces
    • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
    • 1 3/4 teaspoons coarse salt
    • 1/2 cup shelled unsalted pistachios (2 1/4 ounces)
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 large eggs, room temperature
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons orange-blossom water or pure vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
