Rhubarb Dump Cake

July 03, 2015


Over the last few months, we realized that our new house came fully equipped with three giant rhubarb plants.  Right smack dab middle in the backyard. That was nice.  Because, I am not garden person. A green thumb is not something that I possess.  I did plant a few flowers and tomato plants, but, that's it.  Although, Mr Plain is growing watermelon.  Nothing has popped up yet, but, fingers crossed that works out.  Yum.

As for the rhubarb, it's not something we usually eat.  Nothing againist rhubarb or anyone who eats it.  I just didn't think about it.  Until now.

So, being me.  I made a cake with it.  Not a fancy cake, but, darn it! It's delicious.  A little cake mix, a little butter, some rhubarb & sugar and you are in business. Top it off with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream and you've got yourself a really amazing dessert.

Perfect patriotically if you are celebrating the 4th this weekend!
