NIRVANA

Finally, the long wait is over....the rhubarb is ready to be picked. and since it's raining cats and dogs outside....
and since I have been patiently waiting to tie this new apron on....ooooooh, I just love aprons( especially paired with my Muck boots-think Ma Kettle)
it's time to make the long awaited Upside Down Rhubarb Cake. I discovered this recipe over at Farm Chicks -Fresh From The Farm's blog. Oh, baby I was not disappointed. Now let me just state if you love rhubarb as I do, do not pass this recipe over. It is sweet, gooey and the rhubarb- just tart enough.Oh, heavenly day what an easy recipe. A Yellow cake mix, 2 cups rhubarb, 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/2 pint whipping cream. 40 minutes later you have this....
Lets just say it never made it to the upside down stage or to a pretty plate. Warm, right out of the oven with a cold glass of milk- my taste buds were in nirvana. Thanks Farm Chick, we here at Dog Trot Farm love this recipe, my taste buds thank you, no so much my waistline, but yes I would do it all over again! Now go to Farm Chick's blog and check it out for yourself, you will not be disappointed!

I have the yellow cake mix and the ready-to-pick rhubarb. I don't have the whipping cream, but I see a trip to the store in my immediate future..............

YUMMY! That reminds me of Dump Cake, and I think you use pineapple in it. Hmmm . . . I'll have to find that recipe, OR - go out and get some rhubarb at the grocery store or at the farmers market tomorrow. Thanks for sharing. Looks sooo tasty!

Love the Apron, I would have to cook too. I love the upside down rhubarb cake looks like it is to die for, soon as I get my wool cutter, hide the cake!!!
Happy Mothers day. :)

I'm so excited, I have a bag of rhubarb in my fridge from my mom! Today I'll go buy some strawberries for Strawberry-Rhubarb pie. I wonder how that cake would taste with strawberries added in?

Do you have the link to Farm Chicks blog?
