Rhubarb Cake

I am not a rhubarb fan, so my recipe files don’t contain rhubarb recipes. Tim loves rhubarb, especially rhubarb desserts. On an envelope in his scribbles is his mother’s rhubarb dessert recipe.

I didn’t have cream so I substituted evaporated milk. I remember Tim’s daughter making this a few years ago and thinking it was a little runny, so I didn’t put in two full cups of milk.

Tim says this dessert is a yummy combination of cake and rhubarb. Even with the decreased amount of milk, it was still a little runny. Maybe it’s just supposed to be that way? Since this recipe was scribbled on an envelope, it didn’t have any instructions for storage. I think it keeps longer if you store it in the fridge.

Rhubarb Cake

Yellow Cake Mix
4 cups rhubarb, sliced
1 cup sugar
1 pint of cream or half and half

Mix cake mix as directed on the box. Pour in the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 pan. Put rhubarb on top of cake mix. Sprinkle sugar over rhubarb. Pour cream over the top. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

I am linking this to Tasty Tuesday's, Tempt My Tummy Tuesday's and Tuesday's at the Table.

  2. Julie, Julie, Julie!

    Oh this looks tender and moist. I'm with you, not a huge rhubarb fan, but I've got to try this. Thanks to all of you, Tim, his mom, sister and your trial and errors. I think you got it right, and it would be a wonderful cream cake of sorts with any fruit added!

  3. This looks so good to me. I am the only one in the fam that like rhubarb. It sounds a lot like my mother's Rhubarb Crunch but it was a homemade batter and you poured hot water over the top. It was supposed to be almost like a sauce on the bottom, so I think you did it right, it kind of makes a sauce.

  5. Julie, you asked about the Cuisinart 2 quart ice cream maker - called I think the Pure Indulgence. I did a blog about it and then chose it to be my giveaway for reaching 100 and then 200 followers. I LOVE it!!! I have had so many others. This one we have had for 3 years and it has always worked great. I was going to order it from CSN for the winners but they were out. Amazone had it for almost the same price and no shipping. Bed Bath and Beyond has it for about the same if you have the 20% off coupon. You will love it.

    I don't know what to do about my Kitchenaid one, it had worked for a long time and it is nice to have two. Maybe I will get a second Cuisinart.
