This is one of my favorite cakes but I have always made it with a small box of jello instead of the sugar. I have found using the watermelon or strawberry jello to be the best. It just seems to give it an added kick but is not quite so sweet as it is with marshmallows AND sugar. My favorite is the watermelon jello. It gives it that right amount of tartness. Read More

I just finished baking and eating a piece of this delicious cake! I followed the suggestion of another user and used some dry strawberry jello powder (only about 2 tablespoons so it wouldn't be overpowering).I added that to 1/2 cup sugar and then mixed it in with the fruit. It turned out wonderfully and I don't think it's too sweet at all. I baked mine is a greased bundt pan and it looks lovely! I can't wait to share this tastey cake with my family. Read More

This is the first time I have EVER made anything with Rhubarb. I followed the recipe and it is delicious. Just enough tart/sweet. I wondered if the cake would overflow the pan but it didn't. I'd suggest chopping the rhubarb into really small pieces to make sure the batter fits in the pan. This would be good with cinnamon ice cream! Read More

This was a great recipe...for those of us who like rhubarb without the fake flavors of jello. Didn't use the box mix though instead i used a scratch recipe for butter cake. Cooked down the rhubarb first as my pan wasn't deep enough for all the stuff. Read More

This was a great easy recipe. The rhubarb was a little tart but was great warm with whipped cream on it. My pan was really full but everything fit in without overflowing. Read More
