Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square cake pan.
  2. Beat 2 tablespoons softened butter and 1 cup white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat egg into the butter mixture.
  3. Mix 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, to the butter mixture, stirring just to combine into a batter. Fold rhubarb into the batter just until incorporated; pour into prepared pan.
  4. Stir 2 tablespoons melted butter, 1/4 cup flour, and 1/4 cup white sugar together in a bowl until evenly moist; sprinkle over the batter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. Stir 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar, cream, and vanilla together in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Serve sauce immediately with the warm cake.

Made this tonight for Mother's Day and it came together beautifully, smelled great while baking, and came out of the pan without a hitch! Can't wait to taste it but will have to as the event is tomorrow. (I did "quality-check" the batter and YUM!) So far I'd give this a very high score!

I was looking for something a little different to use my rhubarb from the garden. This was very good, but a little sweeter than I would have liked. Next time I would add more rhubarb to offset the sweetness. The texture was perfect though.

Found this recipe last year. Double the rhubarb for sure!! I used maple syrup instead of sugar for the sauce (and also added an ounce or 2 of a liqueur I had handy). I substituted whole plain yogurt for the buttermilk. Substituted cream for the evaporated milk. I use coconut sugar for the cake portion . Also added some cinnamon to both the cake and sauce. HIGHLY recommend. The first time I made this my girlfriend who does not eat desserts tasted a bit out of politeness and ate 2 helpings!
