A few weeks ago, I spent a lovely weekend with my sister! What do we always do when we hang out? Cook and bake, of course! 

My Dad sent a huge bag of rhubarb with us and we had to bake a rhubarb cake!

My sister tried this recipe from a friend last summer and loved it. I chopped up all the rhubarb, she mixed up the cake and an hour later we had ourselves some dessert!

Rhubarb is SO plentiful and grows so well in Minnesota. I have 3 plants in my backyard and it produces more rhubarb that one family could possibly use.

My plant has mostly green stalks with a touch of red, which tends to be more sour than the all red stalks. That makes it perfect for this cake.

Rhubarb is technically a vegetable, but is mostly used as a fruit when cooking or baking. Make sure you discard the leaves though when you pick rhubarb, they are poisonous.

This cake turned out so delicious!

The crunchy brown sugar topping is to die for and the cake itself is moist and flavorful! I just love all the rhubarb in each bite too. Those sweet and sour flavors are perfect.

I love the moments me and my sisters spend cooking and baking together! 

My younger sister cooked us a Croatian feast last weekend with all the food she brought back from her trip to Croatia! It was SO amazing! 

The truffle pasta she made was my favorite! I really love truffle everything though.

I can't wait to travel to Croatia someday and experience their food culture!

    1. I think frozen rhubarb should work as long as it's defrosted and drained well! Let me know if you try it!
