As a child I remember picking stalks of rhubarb from my mom’s garden, snapping off the massive leaves, and heading to the house to rinse off the dirt. My mom would pour sugar into a small paper cup and I’d head outside to savor my treat. Okay, in kid terms it was a treat, raw rhubarb dipped in sugar. As an adult, it makes my mouth pucker just to think about it.
Rhubarb Cake with Whipped Cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix a yellow cake mix (with pudding in the mix) according to the package directions. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish. Cut 5 cups of fresh rhubarb and mix in a large bowl with 2 cups of sugar to coat well. Arrange rhubarb and sugar mixture over cake batter. Drizzle with a 1/2 pint of whipping cream. Bake for 50 minutes. Cool. Serve with whipped cream.
I highly recommend this dessert over raw rhubarb with sugar in a Dixie cup!
The land produced vegetation:
plants bearing seed according to their kinds
and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds.
And God saw that it was good.
