    Growing up my mom would make Strawberry & Rhubarb crisp and it was always my favourite dessert; this one is definitely its competition!! OMG this was amazing! The changes I made was adding a teaspoon of lemon extract to the wet ingredients for the cake mix, substituting 2 cups rhubarb with strawberries and mixing 1/2 the sugar in with the fruit because I like the tartness of rhubarb; and it was a hit!

    This was very easy! Overall - the cake could have been better though....<br/>My tapioca also did not cook (and yes, I let it sit in the rhubarb/sugar/jello mixture for a little over 30 minutes before pouring into the cake pan.) Thing is - I really do not think you need the tapioca with the jello in there. Mine set-up quite nicely even with the uncooked tapioca. It was not too liquidy at all. I used lemon cake and the flavor was great! A nice combo. I will try this again completely omitting the tapioca and submit another review. If that works - I would give this 4 - 4.5 stars with the adjustment.

    This was a hit!! I love that it uses 4 cups of rhubarb. I will be making this again and when I do, I will make it a more generous (heaping) 4 cups. It also does not need an hour to bake the cake. Following the baking instructions on the box will be adequate. I cut the time down to 45 minutes because the top of the cake was getting brown. Probably 40 minutes is enough.

    This really reminds me of springtime. I decided on this cake since I love Pineapple Upsidedown Cake. This was great and unlike anything else I've ever tried. Thank you for the recipe!
