Heat oven to 350ºF. Place egg whites in a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Beat until stiff peaks form.

In a large bowl, stir together ¾ cup honey, flour, 2 tablespoons butter, buttermilk, lemon zest, almond extract and salt. Fold in egg whites, set aside.

In a 9 x 11-inch cast-iron skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over high heat. Toss in rhubarb and ¼ cup honey, cooking just until tender. Turn off heat, fold in berries. Pour custard batter over the berries. Top with sliced almonds and a drizzle of honey.

Bake for 32-37 minutes, or just until the cake is golden and the center has set. Remove and cool slightly before dusting with powdered sugar.

Serve with a dollop of whipping cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
