This recipe has been handed down over the generations, I have been making it for 50 years,. I found it in my moms recipe box when I was a kid. A tasty, moist cake, wonderful to take to family picnics. In winter when you want a taste of summer, get a frozen bag out, thaw and make a summertime cake!

So delicious! I will definitely make this every rhubarb season, and maybe more than once! The topping is delicious and crunchy, and matches very well with the moist cake. The brown sugar in the recipe makes it sooo yummy! I substituted chopped pecans in the topping and loved it
