I made this cake exactly as directed and it was wonderful! This was my first time using rhubarb and I was at a loss what to do with it. The cake is very moist and peeled and chopped the rhubarb into dime-sized pieces so it was evenly distributed throughout, it melted into a tangy jammy texture. I will be making one more this week as a gift for my grandparents.

This was a simple quick recipe and all I had to do was go pick some rhubarb from my own back yard! Cake is moist and has a delightful tart taste. I'll make this again!
