Rhubarb Cake (Recipe)

This is a super fast and easy recipe to try with your rhubarb. It’s also pretty hard to mess it up, trust me, if anyone can mess this up it would be me! I can tell you it’s still going to be ok if you use 4 cups of rhubarb instead of 2, 2 teaspoons of vanilla instead of 1, too much sugar or not enough…You get the picture.

And today, just to add to this list of mistakes I have made while baking this…I baked it for 20 minutes before I realized I forgot to add the topping LOL

To Start:

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk

Mix all these together.

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups flour

mix these 2 ingredients together and add to the first mixture. Mix until smooth.

Add 2 cups of chopped rhubarb and put in a greased 9×13 pan.

For The Topping (Which you don’t want to forget!)

  • 3/4 cups of brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon

Stir these together and sprinkle evenly over the cake.

Bake at 350 degrees Celsius for 45-50 minutes.

This can be served with real fresh cow’s cream which is how my Mom and Grandpa swears it was meant to be eaten. Ice cream is a great substitute as well 😀

I look through cookbooks and recipes online and I find that there’s so much “fluff” and my life is busy so I don’t want complicated meals or deserts! Simple is attainable and because I have a hard time focusing, it’s best to keep things quick as well!
If you try it, I hope you’ll enjoy it 🙂
