Prairie Rose Rhubarb Cake

Hello lovelies!
Thanks to my sweet friend and her yummy baking skills
I have an extra delicious recipe to share with you today.

Over a week ago my church had a breakfast in honor of a sweet couple
that is moving away from the area.
Silly me, I forgot about it until the night before. . .oops!
I remembered my friend shared a rhubarb cake recipe on her Facebook page
and fortunate for me I had the needed ingredients on hand 
including the rhubarb that is growing like crazy in my back yard.
Since this was for a breakfast I decided to add a crumble topping to my cake
and boy was it ever tasty!

Here is the recipe, my friends. . .

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda 
{ I used baking powder since I did not have baking soda}
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk or buttermilk { I used plain ol' milk}
2 cups chopped rhubarb (fresh is best but frozen works too)

1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. sugar

In a large bowl, blend the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla well. 
Mix dry ingredients together, add to butter mixture along with milk.
Do not over mix.
Stir in rhubarb.
Spread into a greased 9x13 pan.
Top with cinnamon sugar. 

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.
Good served warm with whipped cream or ice cream.

For the crumble topping I mixed together:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons butter.
Mix ingredients until the mixture resembles course crumbs.
Sprinkle over cake.
I sprinkled the cinnamon on after the crumble topping.

Oh wow, this sounds delicious! I will have to try this too! Made thumbprint cookies filled with a lemon filling by using your lemon cookie recipe. They were delicious! You always post such good recipes!!!xo

Vee said...

Oh and I had just decided not to harvest more rhubarb...hmmm...may have to change my thinking. This looks yummy!

mamasmercantile said...

Looks delicious, must harvest some more rhubarb. Have a good day.

Oh, Stephanie, this looks so yummy! I love rhubarb and remember my mom's making rhubarb pie and also rhubarb custard with strawberries added to help with the tartness. Done well (both the pie and the custard) people would love it! I remember the delicious crust with the juices hardened at the bottom of the pie...yum! A precious elderly woman in our church had rhubarb growing on the side of her house and would always ask my mom to be the first to take her choice. And she always shared her recipe both for rhubarb and her specialty, date nut bread. Each Christmas people would JOY at receiving a freshly baked and beautifully wrapped bread from her. What a wonderful baker and cook she was! I miss her! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe and for the beautiful photos that always grace your blog, precious friend! Hugs and love!

Blessings to you, Stephanie! Have a lovely week further...love to you!

You have another delicious rhubarb recipe Stephanie, so soft and nice.
I will try this recipe too, because I like rhubarb.

This seems real simple and yummy your cake. I have lots of rhubarb. I make rhubarb in the microwave and then add strawberry Jello when it is party not hot. I add two tablespoons of brown sugar later. Let it cool somewhat. Then put into a empty jam jar. This takes approx 12 to 14 minutes to cook . Your choice to see how the rhubarb cooks. It beats stirring in a pot on stove.
Then you add your strawberry jello into it when it is warm. And the brown sugar is option. I repeat this so one does not forget. Taste it to see if you want it sweeter. I like sort of tangy.

It tastes so good for breakfast on toast or a snack of fruit shake with banana blended and add two tablespoon of the rhubarb to-gether. I made and some milk you can add to make shake a wee bit fluid instead of thick shake. I use Almond milk.

So yours looks real yummy.

I've always loved this cake, but lost my recipe for it.
Thanks for printing it, Stephanie!

Oh how yummy this looks! I don't have any rhubarb right now, but I am thinking that strawberries might work? Or blueberries? It looks so delicious, and I love your idea of using a crumb topping on it. Your pictures look amazing too! Have a beautiful and blessed day :)

Daniela said...

I'm just taking note, this recipe sounds so very jummy, I do love making cakes and do love to eat them too :)
Actually, we're all very 'passionate with cakes' !
Thank you so much my blessed friend, last Tuesday I was tempted to take part to your link party but I didn't know if I had a post which was suitable to the themes you want to be treated, and so I gave up :(

Have a JOYFUL day, my sweet Stephanie,
I'm sending much love and hugs


Jazzmin said...

Such a delicious looking recipe, dear friend!! I am sure it was enjoyed by all. And it is topped with cinnamon, too!? Too much goodness :) Every photo has my mouth watering. And I have just clicked on Sarah's Etsy shop, how delightful are her creations. I am off to look more at them :)

Blessings and hugs!!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
Love to you my friend,

Oh my! I have been buying all the rhubarb I can at a local Mennonite store and freezing it because our season is so short here. I don't have enough room in my garden for how huge the plant gets so I have to get my rhubarb any way I can! This is such a perfect recipe for it too. Sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing it. Going to visit Sarah now!

Linda said...

What a pretty looking cake!!! Thanks for sharing, my hubby and son love rhubarb. Blessings

Mari said...

Yum! I have a variation of this recipe - mine has strawberry jello sprinkled on, then swirled through it, and of course no crumb topping and we love it. I'm going to have to try it with your topping. Thanks!

Kim said...

Oh, my goodness, Stephanie!! Your pictures of this cake are so delectable! Is rhubarb easy to grow? I've never ever tried growing it, and have rarely ever eaten it. That must change! Thanks for this, you dear, dear woman!

This looks so delicious, and you've photographed it beautifully too. I am always so fascinated by the way Americans eat cake for breakfast. :-)

Oh yum! I've never tasted rhubarb but our cake looks so good. I did see on a cooking show that part of the rhubarb plant is poisonous. It must be the leaves??

Karen @ Beatrice Euphemie said...

This looks so delicious, Stephanie! So moist and chewy! Thank you for sharing your friend's recipe. I will take a peek at her website. Hugs xo Karen

This looks just so yummy! I've pinned it to make later. Blessings to you Stephanie!

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Stephanie, oh your cake looks so beautiful and I am sure it was very yummy too. I am highly allergic to rhubarb and can not even get near it. Ate a fork full of a pie many years ago and my throat began to close up and I had welts all over my body. Just crazy isn't it? So I will enjoy your pictures since I can't make it!!
Blessings to you my friend, cm

Stephanie, I love a cake recipe that includes buttermilk; makes it such a moist and delicious cake. I have never tasted rhubarb but John fondly remembers his grandmother growing it in Michigan. Thanks to you and your friend for the recipe. Thanks, too, for the link to her page. Wishing you and your family a blessed day.

Always a day late to come and see you my darling friend, but I know you always save a spot for me for tea and cake! WOW, what a lovely recipe! I have always just known rhubarb for pie, but this looks like a winner!

Are you enjoying these summer days? I feel like making a cake now that I'm home. This just may be the one!

Now to go have a cup of tea for the morning. I saved one bag from my little tea book! MUCH LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Robyn said...

Oh, that looks so delicious, Stephanie! I love this kind of treat at breakfast. I haven't had time for a garden this year so I'm so jealous of your home grown rhubarb! Beautful!

Betty said...

I will have to try this. My Mother loved rhubarb anything. HA! HA!

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

What a perfect cake to share from your friend, Stephanie, especially with your abundance of rhubarb. Your pictures should be in a magazine or a cookbook...they're sooooo pretty! You certainly have a way of presenting beauty!! Love to you, sweet friend.

I just made a rhubarb cake the other day, but it only makes a 8x8 size. We use to have rhubarb plant when we lived in England but haven't had one since, I love it when we can just walk out our door and enjoy God's blessings of food!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Stephanie,
Wish we could grow rhubarb here in the south but we had to give up on it. LOVE to eat it though!

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh my goodness, this rhubarb cake looks so moist and delicious. I've had rhubarb pie before, but not cake. Your pictures always show the goodness of your subject, whether it's food, flowers, nature, home d├ęcor..... they are always very nice.


Stacy said...

So cool you have rhubarb growing out in the garden. This looks really good, Stephanie!
