2-1/2 tsp. baking powder

Grease and flour springform pan, 10 inches. Heat oven to 360.

Cream almond paste, butter. Add sugar and spices. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well blended. Add flour mixed with baking powder - be careful, don't stir too much. Blend well, but on low speed. Spread batter in pan and put rhubarb in dough - vertical so you get a nice pattern of circles. Bake about 45 minutes and cool on rack.
