      Hubby says he would eat it again. Extremely easy to make. I followed the recipe except for I only had 3 cups of rhubarb. Worked out okay but I would mix the cake mix with the water and then dump it over the rhubarb mixture so that there wouldn't be dry lumps. Turns out more like a cobbler than a cake. Thanks.

      Love this dessert - I have made this dozens of times with the yellow cake mix it is delicious. I tried making a variation on it using Duncan Hines Strawberry Supreme cake mix and Strawberry-Banana flavor jello. Came out VERY good!
