This cake is simple to make and delicious. The topping turned out to be a bit crunchy so I think I will put a crumb or strudel topping next time.

This cake is absolutely easy to make and delicious! As the photo shows, I meant to eat just a sliver to taste it, but kept wanting just a little more. My boyfriend loves it, too, and he is not a fan of rhubarb. The taste combo is perfectly balanced!
