Luscious Rhubarb Sponge Dessert

"I am always on the lookout for Rhubarb recipes as it's plentiful in my garden. So one day, upon waiting in the doctor's office, I stumbled upon this one in a magazine. Without having anything to write on, I promply stood up, ripped off a length of paper towel and borrowed one of the doctor's pens to jot it down. Both the doctor and I agreed to make this recipe for our family."

  1. This was a good dessert. I would use more rhubard next time, most likely double. The sugar and water made a nice sauce with the rhubarb, we would just have liked a little more of it. I think if you use more rhubarb, that would do the trick! Thanks for submitting this recipe. I have a large rhubarb patch and always enjoy new recipes.
