as requested...

it is not tuesday therefore i am messing up my schedule... i'm walking on the wild side today. posting a recipe on a day other than tasty tuesday... OH MY!

Rhubarb Cake

what you'll need:

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup margerine
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 stp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup scalded milk
2 cups rhubarb

what you'll need to do:

cream together brown sugar, eggs, margerine and vanilla
add dry ingredients alternately with milk (i dump everything together at the same time... i'm impatient. you get a bit of a cloud when you start mixing but it has never made the cake turn out differently)
add 2 cups rhubarb to batter
pour onto jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with sides)
sprinkle with 1/2 cup white sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon (yes this cake needed more sugar) its delicious. don't skip this in an attempt to make the cake healthier. its cake. its not supposed to be healthy. there is fruit in it. that is enough healthy.
it should make you feel guilty when you sit and eat half of it because you just can't stop. might i remind you...its cake!!
bake at 350 for 25 minutes.


PS. this cake is also very delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
