Terry, This was so very delicious! The only change I made was using a 10" cake pan because I don't have a cast iron skillet...yet!! But as soon as I get one, this will be the first thing I make in it! While I was preparing this, I was a little nervous about the amount of sugar being sprinkled over the rhubarb, but it was just perfect when it was finished! My family loved this cake! Thank you for posting this! ~Wendy
