Recipe by knitaholic

This is one of my all-time favorite desserts. I liked it as a kid, and love it as an adult. I'm slowly trying to get my girls to like it, too.

If I make this again I would put it in a 9 x 13 pan and double the rhubarb/brown sugar mixture. I thought the cake overwhelmed the rhubarb taste but then I am a rhubarb lover. I guess I prefer a cobbler.
