"easy to make and was a beautiful red color when done. Very moist and rhubarb was not overpowering. All my "tasters" loved it. Will definitely make again!"

"I make this cake several times a summer, especially when there's fresh rhubarb available. It works well with frozen too, but fresh is always better. I get a lot of compliments on it and even people who say they don't like rhubarb tell me how much they like it."

"I made this recipe years ago after finding it in Quick Cooking. It was a favorite, but I lost the recipe. We ended up with some fresh rhubarb and my daughter asked me to make this recipe. I went to Taste of Home and did a search and found it right away! I made the cake today and everyone is thrilled. The house smelled yummy while it was cooking! This recipe is so easy and so, so, very good!"

"Great cake to serve for friends and family. I made it for large crowds for a pot luck and it was the first thing to go. Hint with the cake mix, If you use a box mix supliment the oil with apple sause. It makes the cake moist and better for ya."

"This has become a family favorite here. It is so easy to make and quickly dissappears in our house. Our rhubarb thrives all summer long and I used to just let it go after a few cuttings. I now make this cake several times through out the summer now and it never goes to waste."

"My husband love strawberry rhubarb pie, its his favorite thing ever. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to try it. It was so easy to prepared and was so delicious. I cute the recipe in half and then was sorry there wasn't more cake!!! I didn't use a box mix though, I made half a recipe for white cake (I used a taste of home recipe, fruit filled white cake, it was GOOD)"
