    Made this but changed the flaked almonds to ground to give it more of a crumble topping. Everyone loved it  -  28 Jun 2015


    I used this recipe and ended up throwing it in the bin as it turned out terribly.  -  22 Oct 2014


    This was a delicious cake, the cake was spicy and light, and the rhubarb on top was tangy. Great combination of flavors. I had to substitute walnuts in the topping, still tasty. Nice with a dab of whipped cream. I will make this again.  -  31 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
