rhubarb, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 1/3 cups
white sugar, divided
grated orange zest
1 1/4 cups
Excellent just as written. By the way, "6 stalks" of rhubarb means 3 cups of it (diced or chopped), as a cooking standard.
This is delicious. If you like strawberry rhubarb pie, you'll probably like it. I didn't really taste the orange flavor, but that could be because I didn't have fresh orange zest and had to use dried. Despite that, though, this cake is very light and refreshing. I like the fruit and it'll go into my few beloved cake recipes of applesauce cake and carrot cake (I'm not a big sweets fan). I used a bundt pan and it worked just fine. Thanks!
This was very tasty! At first I was thinking the fruit would end up inside the cake somehow, but it stays on the bottom - sort of like an upside down cake. I haven't really baked with strawberries or rhubarb, and I was hoping the fruit would retain it's color somewhat, but it turned light pink - at first I was disappointed in the appearance, but it still tasted good. The orange flavor comes through nicely - without being too "fruitcakey" - and compliments the strawberries and rhubarb perfectly. Served with real whipped cream - pretty sure I'll make this one again! Thanks for sharing!
This was very good! The only change I made was to increase it 50% and bake it in a 9 by 13 pan. I didn't even need to bake it longer. It was sooooooo delicious that I had to pass it along to my Amish neighbor who is an excellant baker.
MMMMM...this was great!!! I made it at work for a group of 20 people, I tripled the recipe and baked it in a full size hotel pan. I needed 2 tablespoons of orange zest, but only got 4 teaspoons from the orange I had, so I used 2 teaspoons of orange extract to make up the difference. I added 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger (will add more next time)to the flour mixture, and also substituted part of the all-purpose flour with stone ground whole wheat flour to up the nutritional value. The cake did take about 20 minutes extra to bake. I think next time I'll bake at 375 instead. I served it warm with a swirl of whipped topping on top. Delicious! *** I recently made this exactly as written and it was fantastic. A keeper for sure!
My mother-in-law is diabetic so I completely replaced the sugar with Splenda and it turned out wonderful. It would be interesting to see how that changes the nutritional info.
Very, very good! I recommend this to anyone who loves strawberry rhubarb pie. The orange zest adds a little kick to this very moist cake.
This was good, but too a little too sweet. I had more rhubarb than the recipe called for, about 6 cups (and used a 9x13 pan) but didn't increase the sugar and still thought that I should've used less sugar. I loved the orange flavor, though!
