2. Rhubarb Spice Cake with Lemon Sauce

"My mother got this recipe back in the 1950s from the minister's wife," says this recipe submitter, PRICKLY PEAR. "It's been a family favorite ever since, even for those who claim to dislike rhubarb."


3. Oma's Rhubarb Cake

"What a winner!" writes recipe reviewer naples34102 of Alea's Grandmother's recipe. "This is simply a great, old fashioned coffee cake--nice balance of rich, moist cake, delicately flavored with rhubarb and topped with a buttery, crackly, streusel. Grandmas always seem to know how to do it best!"

4. Fresh Rhubarb Pie

"So simple...so easy!" raves recipe reviewer SHELLYBEAN. "I thought for sure that it would turn out too sweet because it seemed like a lot of sugar. But it was perfect. You still get that tart zip of the rhubarb. …Make sure to put some of the sugar mixture on the bottom like the recipe states. This forms a layer under the rhubarb while baking, so that the crust doesn't get soggy"

5. Bumbleberry Pie I

"This pie is a winner! A perfect blend of fruits," says recipe reviewer Barb of Doreen Wetheral's recipe. "I used frozen rhubarb and frozen berries and it was still great. Be gentle when blending the berries in so you do not crush them."
