RHUBARB CREAM CAKE








I'm so not a rhubarb fan, but a few weeks ago, at Doug's Mom's birthday party, I tried my sister-in-law, Jill's cake not knowing what I was tasting. OH MY HECK! It was out of this world delish! Everyone was ranting and raving over it and the pan, literally, was licked clean! I couldn't wait to come home and try it myself. Note...A nummy custard will form at the bottom of the pan as cake bakes. It's so simple, so nummy! You'd never know that rhubarb was the fruit in it!

1 (18 oz.) pkg. yellow cake mix

4 c. rhubarb, diced

1 c. sugar

2 c. whipping cream


Prepare cake mix as the package directs. Pour into greased and bottom floured 9 x 13 inch cake pan. Spread the rhubarb evenly on top of the cake batter. Sprinkle the sugar over the rhubarb. Pour 2 cups whipping cream evenly over entire mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.Serve warm. You may add whipping cream on top, but I don't think that it needs it! Store in refrigerator, if there's any left to store. Enjoy!

Oh My God!!! Just what I need! I love rhubarb and we have plenty of it in our garden. Last year I made a sour cream cake with our rhubarb but I didn't care for it but this recipe, oh my!!! It's perfect!

Welcome to Foodie Friday! And what a delicious recipe! I can't believe I'm this old and have never cooked with rhubarb--but after your pictures, that's going to change. I need to plant some in our garden. Thank you SO much for joining us at the potluck. Next week is foodie trainwrecks--but that is an optional theme (Foodie Friday has no rules at all, except to enjoy yourself and to find new recipes). So please post anything that tickles your fancy! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
