Anna’s Rhubarb Cake…

What’s better than Rhubarb Pie?  If someone asked me this question YESTERDAY I would have thought long and hard to come up with answer because I LOVE Rhubarb Pie…you know the kind with the butterscotch filling oozing over the rhubarb…

Well if you asked me TODAY I would say without any thought at all…Anna’s Rhubarb Cake!!  

Here are the pictures to prove just how good it is…

What do you think?  Fresh out of the oven…go ahead, smell it…

P1150027 Look at the rhubarb poking out of the crust…


But it’s the gooey filling that grabs you!!  See the crust on the bottom..has a hint of Almond flavour in it…then gooey rhubarb and on top a crunchy topping with coconut in it…DELICIOUS!!


Of course you are going to want the recipe…and I do like to share…

Anna’s Rhubarb Cake/Dessert

First Layer (the crust)~ mix together the following:

1 Cup margarine

2 Cups flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 egg

1/2 tsp. almond flavouring

Mix and put into a 9” x 13” cake pant, and pat smooth.

Second Layer~ Mix together

5 Cups finely cut rhubarb

1 1/2 Cups sugar

1/2 Cup margarine

1/3 Cup flour

2 eggs

Spread this mixture over the first layer.

Third layer~ mix together:

1 Cup coconut

1/4 Cup flour

1 Cup sugar

1 tbsp. margarine

1 egg

Mix together and spread over the second layer.  Bake for one hour (or longer if rhubarb is frozen) at 350F.

Hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we did!!

On the Quilting Front~

I can’t show you what I’ve been working on (SECRETS!!) so I will show you what our friend,  Kim…(the FULL TIME RVer from The Sands)…has been up to..BUT before I do that..Let me refresh your memory!!  You can read about Kim HERE.

This is a picture of Kim at The Sands..showing off her latest quilt…back in January.


Her and her husband, Don are expecting their FIRST grand-child in September so of course Kim whipped up a quilt (one of many I’m sure!)

Isn’t it sweet?  Love the satin binding…very tactile!  I remember how much my own daughters LOVED the satin binding on their “blankies”…loved them so much they rubbed them ragged!!  Babies love the smooth,cool feel of satin…which made me I wonder why we don’t use satin in our bindings more often!!  Anyways…good THINKING Kim!! 


I also LOVE the fun prints that you picked for this quilt…there sure is a lot of BLUE in this quilt…is there something that YOU KNOW and we don’t….???


Regardless of whether it’s a little girl or little boy…one thing is for certain he/she is going to LOVE this sweet little quilt!

Oh…and to The Sand Club House Quilters…Kim’s coming back and she is raring to GO!  Gwen, save a seat for Kim in the Quilt Mobile…Road to California HERE WE COME!!  ":O)

Have a Magical Monday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. the recipe looks yummy!!..smell a blog would be great!

  2. We pulled rhubarb and made a cake while we were in Nebraska, but oh, does this recipe sound YUM! I would have to go buy the rhubarb here in California, last time I checked, it was around $3 bucks a pound.But, it would be worth it, I'm sure...!

  3. You're killin' me here Paulette! Rhubarb is my favorite...never heard of butterscoth with it...yummm, Rhubarb, quilting, RVing, Road to California, 1st grandchild...all these in one blog and the cake is named after're killin' me...

  4. Thanks Paulette!! Yes, it is supposed to be a boy, well, I hope they are right about the gender because that is the quilt I made! The fabric is " Boys will be Boys" from Windham. I put minkee on the back so it will be super soft, too! Hope to see you soon...

  5. looks fabulous! I am wondering if I can use almond extract instead of flavoring? is it the same thing?

  6. I can't wait to try the Rhubarb Cake. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Love the quilts!

  7. How could a recipe with the name Anna in it not be delicious LOL
    It looks really yummy- I make a rhubarb crisp out of a Canadian Living summer cookbook that is easy and very good too. You can put any kind of summer fruit in it and I often put strawberries and blueberries with the rhubarb.
    The topping has brown sugar, oatmeal, flour butter and cinnamon in the top.
    Thanks for sharing your yummy recipe- I will have to save it for a special luncheon.

  8. My goodness that Rhubarb is calling my name friend! Thanks for sharing--on screen at least!

  9. hat looks delicious, thanks for sharing the recipe! I have a go-to that I almost always end up using (
    but if I can get my family to accept coconut I'll definitely give this a whirl, it looks like a winner to me!

  10. Ooohhh. I haven't had rhubarb since I left home 35 years ago. Tried growing it down South once. Wasn't pretty...... I don't even remember seeing it in the grocery stores down here. Maybe I need to broaden my search!

  11. oh love that fabric your friend used on the quilt...I ordered some of the monkey stuff from them :) Can't wait till it comes

  12. Hi Pauline, I tried the rhubarb cake and it is delicious! And surprisingly easy to put together for a cake with three parts. I still have edible rhubarb in my garden. I think the incredible amount of rain we've had this year is to credit for that.
