"Oh boy this is good ! It disappeared so fast I had to make another one the next day which I sharec with my neighbors also. This cake is really moist and tastes like "Rhubarb Pudding" my gramma used to make in the early 40's. It is very easy to make and the neighbor I shared with said she had to drop by to see what i was baking.. grammajune"
"Yum Yum Yum! That's what I said when I took it out of the oven and I haven't stopped saying it since. Just like the one my mom used to make! Thanks Lennie."
"This was my first rhubarb cake and the first time my grandkids had ever tasted rhubarb. When I served it with whipped topping, they all said it was delicious. Thanks for a good cake!"
"Very soft and moist cake.My family loved it.Gone by breakfast."
"Oh, Lennie! This is to die for!! :o) I have never even heard of rhubarb until I married 11 years ago, and I had my MIL's strawberry rhubarb pie. I fell in love instantly! It is my favorite pie! I simply HAD to try this, especially since it had a familiar name in the title! LOL My family went nuts over this! So moist and delicious and I had almost everything on hand. Thanks for another first prize winner in our family!!"
"Other than substituting cinnamon for nutmeg, cuz I didn't have nutmeg, I followed the directions as written & everyone loved this cake. Rhubarb was available at the Farmers Market & one bunch for a lousy $2.00 made the 4 cups perfectly. I just asked the seller & he told me to pick the smallest redist stalks, and said that would make the 4 cups. How would I know. Anyway, thank you for this recipe. It made me the hit of the neighborhood when I gave it out to my friends."
"I was able to use gluten free flour in this recipe, and it still came out great! Thanks for sharing such a tasty recipe."
"Very Good. Even hubby who doesn't like rhubarb liked it. Thanks"
"Fabulous cake. I'm throwing away all my other rhubarb cake recipes. This cake is moist, delicious, and slices neatly into attractive servings. I beat the sour cream directly into the butter/egg/sugar mixture. then folded in the flour mixture. I also substituted cinnamon for nutmeg in the topping, and added 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans. My cake took 50 minutes to bake in a heavy ceramic baking dish. I also think it serves 16 rather than 12, since each slice is so rich."
"Great Great Great! I have been looking for a recipe for all that rhubarb that didn't leave a strange taste in your mouth. The dough tasted great so I was ready for a great cake and this recipe didn't disappoint. I did add half sour cream half marionberry yogurt and 1 cup currants with 2 cups rhubarb (I will increase that next time) and I also switched up the flour to 1 cup regular and 1 cup teff flour. I also made a bit sweeter topping to include 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon<br/>1 tablespoon butter, softened - next time I may leave out the butter. The cake was a bit pudding like which we loved. The kids ate it as it came out of the oven and again for dinner. I will add all the rhubarb next time or split half and half with the currants."
"Really good cake! I used only 1 tbls of sugar for the topping though and subsituted cinnamon for the nutmeg (personal preference). My cake tested done at 35 minutes and I will check it at 30 mintues the next time. Goes great with vanilla ice cream too! Thank you for sharing!"
"Wow this was good! It was more like a bread pudding - in a good way! Lower in fat too, which was great. I will totally make this again. I'm passing this recipe on to all my rhubarb-lovers. Thanks so much for the keeper!"
"Nice cake with lots of rhubarb! I cut the sugar (because I don't like things too sweet), used half whole wheat flour and substituted greek yogurt for the sour cream and it was still nice and moist and plenty sweet. The batter was a little thick, but I think you need that to soak up the juices from the rhubarb. I also used raw sugar for extra crunch on top, but only about half the amount the recipe called for. Thank you for sharing!"
"Very good rhubarb cake - our family really enjoyed it. I will use cinnamon next time instead of nutmeg, though, but that's just our taste. The batter does seem like it would be too dry, but once you put the sour cream in, then it looks like the right consistency for cake batter. Loved it. Thanks for the recipe, Lennie!"
"Good cake, thanks! I thought it might be too sweet, but was just the right amount of tart for me. Tasty and moist, even on day 3...and that's as long as it lasted!"
"Very good. Next time I will cut the nutmeg down to 1/4 tsp. This cake stayed very moist."
"Another great rhubarb treat!"
"Quite good! I resisted the urge to mix cinnamon with the nutmeg for sprinkling on top. I'm glad I did, the nutmeg gives it a special taste. I didn't know if I was to fold in the sour cream THEN the rhubarb or fold them both in at the same time. I did the later and it turned out fine. Very moist. I will make it again."
"I have a lot of rhubarb in my garden and so I decided to make tow rhubarb cakes to compare. Both are excellent and moist. The other one was rhubarb coffee cake by kate in ontario. This one has double the amount of rhubarb in it and so the texture was more gooey and more rhubarb flavor. The coffee cake was more cake like. I like the coffee cake better my husband likes this one. We both agree the topping on the other cake is much better."
