I made this last night to bring to work with me today. My husband tried a piece of it and wouldn't let me bring it to work. He loved it so much. That's a huge compliment since he doesn't typically like sweets. This is a great recipe!

Yum! Had to sub fresh strawberries for 1/2 the rhubarb & added 1 c. chopped walnuts. Love the cin/sug. crust and the moistness of the cake. Also added a tsp. of cinnamon to flour mix as I love cinnamon.
