Rhubarb season is around the corner! This recipe is a great combo of sweet and tangy! I usually double the sauce ingredients and I ALWAYS omit the gross raisins! :o)! BTW, 1/64 tsp=a pinch! :o))!

I'm a big fan of pudding cakes, and a lover of rhubarb, so clearly, making this recipe was a must. Fantastic flavour. I didn't have any lemons, so used a lime in its place. I even liked the raisins in it. As like M&Mers, I too doubled the sauce. :) Most recipes never have enough. Since I'm the only one that likes rhubarb, I'm going to freeze individual portions to be enjoyed later. I'll let you know how that works out. This is going to be a "must make" every Spring. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful recipe. UPDATE June 12/09: Tried it from frozen. Nuked individual serving size for 4 minutes on high. :) This is truly an amazing dessert. This *will* be made every year. Might even give it a try using frozen rhubarb and Splenda. If I do, I'll update again.
Excellent pud! Followed the recipe including adding golden raisins, and it was a complete success. I definately made a good choice for the first rhubarb of the season! Thanks!
This is delicious! I made this tonight for dessert with some of the last rhubarb from out of our garden and was very pleased with how it turned out. Moist, delicous, with a lovely sweet and tangy flavour. I used raisins as we happen to love them in my household. Served it with some nice vanilla ice cream. Thanks for a great recipe!
