Easy Rhubarb Cake

This sounds too easy to be true but the result is a truly beautiful dessert with an excellent flavour. I found it in Mastercook while searching for something to serve for a bunch of children but the adults loved it too. The originator is a Francis Bolton. Bless her, whoever she is! Be sure and bake it enough. If the top is dark it doesn't matter, no-one sees it.

    I never take the time to review recipies that I try. I am making an exception. This is the best rhubarb recipie I have ever tried. It just cooled off and I cut a piece and it is amazing. Thank you for sharing this. Now I am going to be trying to find more rhubarb to freeze!

    I only gave this four starts instead of five because it didn't turn out quite as "pretty" as I had hoped. As far as taste goes...definitely FIVE stars! I really liked the effect of the marshmallows!

    I love rhubarb and this cake was good, but I wouldn't make it again. It was a little too sweet for my taste.

    I grew up with this recipe, however, we grease the pan and just spoon the cake out ( we don't invert it) I also love it hot or cold also I've used strawberry or raspberry jello w/ no problem. We serve it w/ homemade whipped cream. YUM! Makes me think of grandma.
