Rhubarb cake recipe.....

My rhubarb is really growing in the garden.  If you're one of the many who have never tried rhubarb, you are in for a real treat if you try my cake. 
Rhubarb Cake
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups cut-up rhubarb

Topping:
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Grease and flour 9 X 13" pan.  Cream brown sugar, butter and egg together.  Add vanilla.  Sift flour, soda and salt together.  Add alternately with buttermilk.  Fold in rhubarb.

Pour into baking pan and sprinkle with sugar & cinnamon mixture.  Bake one hour at 350 degrees.

It's a wondeful cake and works great for a coffee cake.

My garden is doing really well even though it's in need of a good rain.  I've planted 2 tomato plants but will plant more next week.  In Mo. it's best to wait until the first part of May for tomatoes. 



I'm trying to go out everyday and do a little work so the weeds don't get a chance to grow.  So far it's worked.  I love being able to go out and have lunch out of the garden.

Your garden looks beautiful! This has been a wonderful, colorful spring. And you're right about the lilac fragrance. My Mock Orange will probably be in full bloom in a week...heavenly!

Jan - Finally had a chance to catch up with your blog. Everything looks so wonderful. The cake sounds delicious... I'll pass on the recipe. Your ferns are wonderful... just getting some started myself. I planted up a bunch of containers this week. I'll have to cover them a few nights this week, but am thankful to have them done. I don't have a green thumb, so wish me luck.
Have a great Sunday - Polly
