Oh rhubarb. How I love you.

I grew up eating rhubarb every spring and summer here in Minnesota. My siblings and I couldn't wait for the rhubarb to pop out of the ground, grow and ready to be harvested.

We'd eat stalks right off the plant sprinkled with salt or sugar, and couldn't wait for our Mom to make her usual rhubarb cake! 

I have yet to post that recipe, but today I'm sharing my best friend, Stacy's Grandma Maurer's Rhubarb Cream Cake recipe!

For the last couple months, my best friend Stacy, has been telling me about this delicious rhubarb cake her Grandma Maurer makes. 

We finally were able to hang out and bake, so I decided to grab a couple of bags of rhubarb out of the freezer to defrost, and we make this cake! 

This cake is oh so bad, er I mean good for you.

Why you ask?

Well, it has a whole pint of whipping cream poured over top. Need I say more?!?

No seriously though, all that cream on top settles to the bottom and makes an amazing rhubarb custard. The cake bakes golden brown on top and is so sweet and crunchy.

Stacy's family has been making this for decades and now I will be making it every year. I've since served it at gatherings and shared with friends and everyone raves and raves about this amazing cake.

RHUBARB IS SUPER EASY TO GROW!!


If you live in Minnesota and don't have rhubarb growing in your yard, it's time to get some!

Go to the greenhouse, have a friend share plants with you. After you transplant, let it be for a couple years, then it will be ready to harvest!

For a free to small investment, you can bake endless desserts for years to come! Share your abundance with co-workers, family, or chop up and freeze for winter baking!

I have three plants at my house, and I always have more than enough for myself and others. My aunt was sweet enough to give me the plants after I purchased my house so I could get them started right away.

  12. I made this several times last summer. My family loved it and it was a HUGE hit at every potluck we went to! Fast, easy, and delicious. It doesn't get much better than that!

  13. This is the best of the rhubarb dump cakes, as far as I'm concerned. It makes a wonderful custard on the bottom with the rhubarb. Little whipped cream when served and it's the best!

  14. Okay, I used about 4 cups of frozen rhubarb (water squeezed out) and added about 2 cups whole frozen strawberries. When I served the cake, everyone was commenting how delicious it was. Then I suddenly realized that I had forgotten to add the cup of sugar per the recipe. The strawberries and cake mix apparently contained enough sweetness and I think if the sugar had been added it would have been way too sweet! Since we were serving to 5 grandchildren that evening, everyone was glad that the extra sugar had not been included!

  15. I've made this for years and I've substituted canned peaches for the rhubarb and cut back on the sugar, makes a great peaches and cream cake!
