Rhubarb Dump Cake Recipe



Rhubarb season brings back so many childhood memories. You could always find my siblings and I eating some raw rhubarb with salt sprinkled on it, or my Mom baking a cake with rhubarb in it. It is one of my favorite things about spring. 

This recipe for dump cake comes from my Step-mom Monica. This cake has been my favorite since the first time I tried it. I'm not much of a baker at all, which you might already know from some of my past posts, so this was actually my first time making it. Cooking and baking have always been interests of mine, but I never took the time to do it often. 

All of that changed. Last year I was rear ended in a car accident and during my long road to recovery, I spent alot of time at home. I turned that time into cooking and trying new recipes, and eventually started blogging them to share. I am amazed at how much I love blogging, and am so glad something so great, came out of such a traumatic and life changing event.

This recipe has just the right mix of sweetness and tart. Top it off with some freshly whipped cream for an amazing dessert. It is also a great one for the kids to help with. Ella has a kid safe knife, so she loved cutting the rhubarb, measuring, and dumping it into the pan for me. I hope you enjoy this as much as we have over the last few years!
