Reviews for Rhubarb Custard Cake
"I don't understand the photo - the rhubarb is in the middle of the cake but the instructions have you put the rhubarb on top. Does it sink to its own to the middle? thanks"
"We really enjoyed this cake. I made it as the recipe is written. It was golden brown and done at 45 minutes."
"Used the liquid drained off my frozen rhubarb for the water in the cake mix for extra flavor, yummy!"
"We love rhubarb and always make a pie with the first picking. Wanted to try something different. Searched "Taste of Home" for a recipe and this popped up. Delicious and oh so easy to make. This will be made again and again as long as the rhubarb holds out. Hmmm, wonder what it would be like with strawberries?"
"Mine was raw in the middle after the suggested cooking time. I will definitely bake it a lot longer next time. I did use half & half instead of whipping cream but that shouldn't have made that much difference in the cooking time. I agree with the one other reviewer on a cooking time of 1 hour 15 minutes."
"I have made this many times, always turns out great. However, I use 2c. sugar and a pint of whipping cream (2 cups instead of 1). If you want it slightly less fattening, you can use 3/4 pint of half and half, but it comes out more watery and less custardy but still yummy! And I bake 1hr 15mins."
"Incredibley easy and delicious...I used rhubarb I had frozen from my garden and it turned out beautifully!"
"I also use a small box of strawberry jello and add enough water to make a cup - so good and delicious....yummy"
"The ease and flavor is wonderful. The rhubarb never did settle to the bottom and looks nowhere like the picture. Wish I knew why."
"I have made this many times and never had one person say they didn't like it, and it always disappeared. and it is sooooo easy"
"I make at least two or three of these each spring! Deee-lish!"
"we really liked this cake, especially when it was cooled."
