This cake was quite tasty, though exceedingly sweet. However, it was quite difficult to get out of the pan as it stuck to the bottom, and for this reason I won't be making it again.

This was unbelievably yummy! If it is any indication of other rhubarb recipes, I am now a rhubarb lover! I made this with fresh farmer's market rhubarb for a book club meeting and it was thoroughly enjoyed. DH had several pieces of the leftovers before bed, then polished it off for breakfast LOL. I reduced the sugar in the topping a bit, used half whole wheat flour, and used Smart Balance Omega spread for the butter. Delicious! Thanks so much for posting. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

I follow a gluten free diet and used gluten free all purpose flour and added extra baking powder. I didn't have buttermilk so I used milk+lemon juice. This cake turned out to be cross between a crumble and a cake. It was scrumptious, sweet with the slight tart of the rhubarb. Very Yummy.

I did use the equivalent of 1t of baking soda instead of 2t baking powder, because my neighbor has a similar recipe, But other than that, this was an awesome cake! I found fresh rhubarb at a farmer's market, and since I had plenty, I doubled this recipe, & baked it in a 9x13" pan. None spilled over the sides, although the topping did puff up. It had cooled and we enjoyed it with coffee (decaf) as a bedtime snack, but I think we'll nuke some and serve it with ice cream for tonight's late evening indulgence. Thanks for a great recipe!

This cake was a big hit with the group I served it to this evening. I 1 and a half timed the recipe and baked it in a 9X13 pan. Worked well. I know you can't use 1 1/2 eggs--just used two.

This is yummy ! I "inherited" a rhubarb patch with our old farmhouse, and figured I needed to try something with it. My hubby doesn't eat desserts, so I was looking for a smaller cake. This one is terrific - easy to make, tastes fantastic, and just the right size. I used the buttermilk powder for mine- worked perfectly.

I didn't have butter milk so I used thick fat-free yogurt instead and it was delicious

My Mom's neighbor gave me the recipe for this cake years ago - it's wonderful. I actually haven't made it myself, but have eaten it many times.
