Easy to make and absolutely delicious. A perfect combination of moist, sweet and tart tastes. This will certainly be a recipe that we will use often.

Really good! I had no idea what it would be like. It's not fluffy or thick like cake. It's kind of like a cookie bar, or it is kind of like a thin brownie consistancy with a cruncy top. Quite sweet; you can taste the sugar and brown sugar. Easy to cut into squares. So easy to make. The sweetness balances out the rhubarb. Something different to try.

This was a really terrific recipe and a big hit with my family. It fills the house with a delicious scent and certainly makes wonderful use of the fresh rhubarb in my garden. This is a nice dessert but I can see that it would be lovely with morning coffee too. Thanks for a great receipe!
