Very simple to prepare and you get a very pretty self-saucing pudding. However 3 cups of sugar in a recipe is a lot and I found it way too sweet.The amount of sugar and water could be reduced [?half] in the rhubarb mix. A bit of cinnamon wouldn't go astray either. It barely fitted in a casserole dish. Having said that it didn't stop the two kids [age 3 and 6] polishing off quite a bit of this.
This was absolutely wonderful tasting rhubarb pudding cake. The longer you bake it the more cake-like it becomes. I used two 9" metal cake pans since I wanted to share one with the neighbors but otherwise I would use a 9" x 12" or 13" baking pan. No way will all this fit into one round cake pan. It's delicious!
