Have I told you my neighbors don't like rhubarb. More importantly, have I told you that we love rhubarb and that our next door neighbors, Lauren and Jay (who happen to not care for it) have a big bed of rhubarb and that we get to take as much as we like? In all fairness, they didn't plant the rhubarb. Our previous neighbor did.
I was going to make my friend's mom's rhubarb bread recipe, but I'm out of brown sugar. So where do you think I went to find a new rhubarb recipe? Yup. Pinterest.
What I found was Oma's Rhubarb Cake on allrecipes.com.
I baked it last night and it came out pretty darn good. Hot out of the oven we gave it 8 out of 10 stars- we only waited long enough to not burn ourselves while holding a piece. Be forewarned, the fruit inside is hot to eat even when you can hold it. Learned that the hardway.
This morning I thought it had gotten a little bit dry. I think my oven must bake on the high side, so next time I'd check the cake before 45 minutes. Also, I didn't have sour cream and used yogurt instead,which I'd probably do anyways. I like the tangier bite of non-fat yogurt.
The topping really made this cake. Decadent. Golden brown when baked and delicious.
