Rhubarb Rhubarb Rhubarb!

I am finally getting around to posting my Gramma's Rhubarb cake recipe, I have been in a bit of a bloggy bog lately. Anyhow here it it-

Grandma's Rhubarb Cake

2c. diced rhubarb
1/2c. sugar
1/2c. shortening
1-1/2c. sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2c. flour
1t. soda
1t. cinnamon
dash of salt
1c. buttermilk
1t. vanilla

Oven 350
Mix together the rhubarb and half c. sugar and set aside. Cream together the shortening and remaining sugar, add in the eggs and mix well. Sift together the remaining dry ingred, and stir together the last 2 ingred. Alternately add in the wet and dry ingred. to your batter. When well mixed, stir in the rhubarb. Pour into greased 9x13 pan. Bake for about 40 min. Serve with whip cream or ice cream .
Unless you are having it for breakfast ;)

(Hubby just informed me that whip cream and ice cream, are imperative for rhubarb cake AT ALL TIMES! Sadly he is not a Fan of Rhubarb)

Now while I was surfing the web, checking for more rhubarb recipes to use with my bumper crop I found this site here Rhubarb Recipes.
It has ALL kinds of Rhubarb recipes, very fun.

You should, someone else also said that rhubarb crisp is their favorite. There is a recipe for it on that site but I haven't tried it yet =)

That sounds delicious! I never liked rhubarb as a kid, but when I tried it again a couple years ago I loved it! I'll have to try this recipe - Thanks!

I have 1 kiddo who gnaws on it raw! The other 3 won't touch it unless it's cooked, it is sour stuff =)
