Recipe by Northwest Lynnie

This is a 1950's recipe from the Rhubarb Growers Assoc. of Sumner, Washington (my hometown, also known as "The Bulb Capital of the West"!). Different from all of the other rhubarb cake/rhubarb upside down cake recipes on Zaar, it includes lemon peel which adds a wonderful fresh flavor. The cute title hints at the hiding rhubarb beneath the cake.
