Oma's Rhubarb Cake
This was incredible. My kids loved it and they normally hate cake. I also added a scant 4 cups of rhubarb and don't even think that 3 would suffice. I used plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream since I didn't have the latter. That added some healthy protein and works really well as a substitute. Very moist. I may even cut some sugar out next time. I'm pretty sure that the recipe is fine on its own, but extra rhubarb is highly recommended.

Rhubarb Custard Pie II
This is a great pie, but even though I cut out 1/2 cup of sugar, everyone in my family still said it was too sweet. I wondered if I had gotten some extra sweet sugar, but that wasn't logical, so the next pie I make, I will only use 1 cup of sugar or just a scant over one cup. I can only imagine if I used 2 cups of sugar what the reaction from my children, who love sweets, would have been.
