Awesome! I did let the rhubarb sit in the sugar, jello and tapioca for a half hour and it had started to get nice and gooey by that time. Tasted fantastic, and easy to make. The crowd at work raved about it!
This was a hit!! I love that it uses 4 cups of rhubarb. I will be making this again and when I do, I will make it a more generous (heaping) 4 cups. It also does not need an hour to bake the cake. Following the baking instructions on the box will be adequate. I cut the time down to 45 minutes because the top of the cake was getting brown. Probably 40 minutes is enough.
This was very easy! Overall - the cake could have been better though....<br/>My tapioca also did not cook (and yes, I let it sit in the rhubarb/sugar/jello mixture for a little over 30 minutes before pouring into the cake pan.) Thing is - I really do not think you need the tapioca with the jello in there. Mine set-up quite nicely even with the uncooked tapioca. It was not too liquidy at all. I used lemon cake and the flavor was great! A nice combo. I will try this again completely omitting the tapioca and submit another review. If that works - I would give this 4 - 4.5 stars with the adjustment.
