This is a delicious recipe! I was a little worried about the rhubarb being fully cooked so I went a head & poached it in boiling water for 10 minutes to make sure it was soft. (I had a pie not turn out so great before when I didn't know about poaching rhubarb.) This cake is beautiful! Some of the topping stuck to the bottom of the pan when I flipped it over but it came off easy & I just spread it right back on top of the cake. I also garnished the cake with pineapple rings since this is for Nana's 85th birthday. Thanks for the great recipe! A Keeper! Read More

I tried the white cake mix and did not care much for it so next time I made the cake with yellow cake mix. It turned out great. You will have to try it yourself and see what you think. All and all great recipe. Read More

Absoltuely delicious. Make sure you chop the rhubarb so that it is cooks while the cake bakes. 1hour is too long it was done in 45 minutes. Read More

My whole family loved this - even better than traditional pineapple upside-down cake. I used what rhubarb we had which ended up being about 2 cups instead of 3 and found that 1 hour at 350 was a little much. Next time I'll try 1 hour at 325 or 50 minutes at 350. Read More
