Erica's Rhubarb Cake

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by WiGal

This decadent cake came from a student's grandmother, and was the child's request for her class treat. Her mother also put confectioners frosting on it while hot and sprinkled with some chopped pecans. The class loved this, and so does my family:) The rhubarb and the batter.

Most excellent recipe. I added a bit of cinnamon to the rhubarb-sugar combo. Topped it with vanilla ice cream or some whipped cream...yum...
