I made this last night for my Dad. He is very unwell and has been requesting dishes his mother made when he was a young boy on the farm. I took a chance and made this for him. He loved it, and in fact we all did. I can’t wait to try it with other fruit!

I’m adding this to my recipe box. I love rhubarb and this looks wonderful.

This was one of the best tasting rhubarb recipes I have ever tried. It’s not for the faint of heart (three! Sticks! Butter!) But delicious! Even my sister in law who does not like rhubarb thought it was delicious.

Very good and easy to make… and great for breakfast with fresh strawberries on the side.

Just as my dad remembered it from when his mother made it out on the farm. Moist cake with just enough sweetness to counteract the tart fruit!

My family loved it. I added some nutmeg to the streusel and it was just what I wanted.
