Happy Friday, ya’ all!

I’m off for an overnight visit to see (and babysit) my grandson, but I just HAD to share this SUPER yummy recipe with you before I go!

As I mentioned last week, we’ve had a bumper crop of rhubarb this spring, even though it had a very traumatic beginning!!!

Since I hate to let anything in my garden go to waste (especially when it struggled so hard), I’ve been picking the rhubarb as fast as it grows!

So far I’ve made several batches of jam, a few crisps, and pie-but the other day I decided to try a new recipe that I found in one of my church cook books.

When I first read this recipe through, I have to admit I thought it would be far too sweet!!

Yes, even as tart as rhubarb is, some recipes try and overcompensate for that, by adding WAY to much sugar.

Truth is, I like the tartness of rhubarb.

But because I knew the author of the recipe (that DOES make a difference), I decided to try it, and worst case scenario, I give it to mom, because she LOVES anything sweet!

So how did it turn out?

Well…let’s just say mom won’t be getting THIS cake.

Okay-maybe a piece, but hubby and I have dibs on the rest!

Here is the recipe!  I hope you enjoy!
