About this recipe: A sweet, and wonderfully moist cake, using fresh rhubarb, with optional coconut and almonds! This cake disappears fast at our house.
mmm so moist, easy to bake and lasted over a week in a air tight container; what little was left of it. I made mine with dairy- & wheat- free ingredience - 09 Aug 2013
Oh So good warm with whip cream! Just as good the next day cold with coffee! I doubled the rhubarb & cut 1/2 cup sugar out. Topping was just enough. I didn't have any almonds so I put in a little almond extract. We love the tid bits of cocoanut. really makes this cake special. I only had one egg so I put in a t. baking powder and it is so light and fluffy I might do it this way every time! Real butter is a must if you want that rich taste. Oh, and the finished cake is very pretty with a golden brown top. Nice looking (quick and easy) company cake for us that have loads of rhubarb! - 26 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Mmmmmmm, nummy! This is excellent. Still warm from the oven, and delicious. Would be good with some vanilla ice cream. I wouldn't have minded more rhubarb, but I used all that I had. Probably had more than the recipe called for too! I love rhubarb. The only changes that we made were: omitted nutmeg, almonds and coconut. (I'm out of nutmeg and almonds and my son didn't want coconut in it.) I also added 1/2 cup of flax meal for added nutrition. Oh, and I didn't have any buttermilk, so I added 1 tsp. vinegar to 1 cup of regular milk. - 03 May 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
