this is an easy to make and carry cake.

"Great recipe! I substituted 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour for part of the white flour, and reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup. Texture, even with whole wheat was light and fluffy, but not falling apart. The same recipe could easily be used with any fruit. I'll definitely make this again."

Very good cake. Used only 1 cup sugar and substituted flour for whole wheat. Turned out moist!

The cake consistency is good, and the sweetness of the cake balances out the tartness of the rhubarb chunks. We enjoyed this cake. I substituted yogurt for sour cream and used a recipe of 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon for the topping.

Loved this thanks! Used half cup sugar total and also added strawberries.

Yum!! Used wholemeal flour, didn't add sugar, it was sweet enough with added strawberries! Mmm this cake was really soft and the rhubarb was really delicious!

I made this over the weekend & it was a big hit! I will definitely make this again. I wouldn't do anything different, the topping was just right!

So easy, and everyone loved this moist cake. Used part whole wheat flour & next time will cut topping amount down a bit.
