Homemade Rhubarb Cake with Nuts

Raye S., a regular visitor to Rhubarb submitted this recipe to share with other visitors, Thanks Raye!

Best Rhubarb Cake Made with Fresh Rhubarb or Frozen Rhubarb

 I think this is the best rhubarb cake I have ever made :)



1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbsp. butter, melted


Note: If you are planning to use frozen rhubarb for this recipe, thaw it the evening before, in a sieve, over a bowl and discard the excess liquid.

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream
2 1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb



In a small bowl, mix the granulated sugar, chopped nuts, cinnamon and melted butter and set aside.

Nut Topping for Rhubarb Cake


In another, larger bowl, using a fork, cream together the brown sugar and the shortening, and then mix in the egg.

In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt.

Add the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream to the creamed shortening mixture, and mix just until well combined.

Gently fold in the chopped rhubarb.

Transfer the cake batter to a greased, 9" x 13" baking dish. (I used a glass baking dish).

Batter for Homemade Rhubarb Cake

Sprinkle the reserved crumble topping mixture over the top of the batter in the baking dish.

Bake at 350° F for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Serve cake warm or cold, plain, or with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.

Baking Tip

To chop whole nuts, simply place the nuts between a piece of folded waxed paper, or inside a plastic bag, and roll over the nuts with a pastry rolling pin (see picture at right or below in mobile view).
