I made this recipe and it was great !! I cut down on the sugar and it was still sweet enough. I would however of added more rhubarb - I would say another two cups or three if you are daring. All the family loved it ...it is a keeper recipe !!

This recipe is excellent. I made it for the first time in 2005 and 9 years later I'm still making it every summer! Note: the cake is actually quite big so unless I have many guests I bake it in two 8x8 baking pans and then freeze one. It freezes very nicely.

I didn't have quite enough rhubarb, so added chopped apple to make up the required amount. Delicious !!
