When I was putting a recipe book back in the cupboard, a piece of paper came floating out of the cupboard (yes, I admit, my recipes are totally unorganized). I picked the paper up an noticed that it was a rhubarb recipe. Apparently I had saved it from somewhere, but had never tried it.
I decided right then and there it was time to try it…oh, am I glad I did!
Here it is with a little dollop of ice cream on top. Hubby loves it. Son loves it…I love it. Typically I am not a huge fan of recipes that use box cake mixes. This recipe is the exception. Here goes…
Mix up one yellow cake mix following the directions on the box. Pour into a greased cake pan.
Put three cups of chopped rhubarb over the top.
Sprinkle one cup of sugar over the top of that.
Pour a pint of whipping cream over the top of that. (I only had half and half and that worked fine)
Bake according to the cake mix (mine needed an extra five minutes)….It isn’t really pretty looking when it comes out. To serve it, flip the portion upside down. Whip cream would be WONDERFUL on this.
The cream and sugar makes a custard like pudding on the bottom of the pan. Definitely try this recipe…if you like rhubarb, you’ll love it! I would refrigerate it…and it’s even better the next day….yum.

Thanks! I’m always up for a good rhubarb recipe.
Looks delicious .. we are moving and the new house doesn’t have rhubarb .. I may have to remember to bring some plants over! I love rhubarb! :)
…..picked some rhubarb yesterday and will give this recipe a try. It is quick and easy…..thanks for sharing.
Sounds yummy, but I am not a big fan of rhubarb, do you think I could substitute it for something else?
That sounds good!! I would think you could use any fruit you like. I would just make sure that all juices were drained off the fruit really well. Peaches would be good too!
Have to serve for our quilters get-together, will try this and let you know how it turns out. thanks
