Reviews for Rhubarb Custard Cake
"We really enjoyed this cake. I made it as the recipe is written. It was golden brown and done at 45 minutes."
"I really love rhubarb and even though you used a cake mix for this it will not even slow me down I will stir up a cake from scratch and try this one. We have another rhubarb cobbler we make a lot of so we have many frozen packages of four cups of rhubarb in our freezer."
"The original recipe called for an 18.25 ounce cake mix so I added extra flour (about 5-6 Tbls) to keep consistency with current smaller weight packaging. It turned out just like the picture, and every bit as tasty. This cake will certainly be making repeat appearances at our table."
"Used the liquid drained off my frozen rhubarb for the water in the cake mix for extra flavor, yummy!"
"My family absolutely raved about this as they love rhubarb & its soooo easy!! I sprinkled a mixture of cinnamon & sugar over the top half way through baking..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."
"I have used this recipe for years. I use a white cake mix instead of a yellow and it smells and tastes heavenly! I let the chopped rhubarb and sugar gel up before I sprinkle it over the cake."
"This is my new favorite rhubarb recipe. Wonderful creamy texture. Easy to make. Doesn't taste like it started from a mix. I took it to a church dinner and was asked for the recipe! I'll probably try this again sometime with peaches, strawberries, or blackberries."
"Incredibley easy and delicious...I used rhubarb I had frozen from my garden and it turned out beautifully!"
"Fast, easy and oh so delicious. I also make this cake using blueberries (but, use less sugar). I experiment with other cake mixes too, such as I have used lemon with the blueberry."
"I have also made this several times. It is an easy and delicious cake. I entered it in our peach bake off (of course I used Peaches), and got 2nd place."
"My kids even love this cake, I like it because it is easy and whip it up in no time. I use different flavors of cake mix, and add fresh strawberries."
"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."
"I took this cake to a meeting of ladies and everyone wanted the recipe. It's very easy to make & very delicious."
