Every year at this time I just can’t get enough of rhubarb. Rhubarb in every thing.  I pared my own rhubarb plant right down to the bare minimum, so I had to scour the neighbourhood for another batch.  Haha!  Thankfully I had a lovely neighbour oblige my rhubarb obsession and hooked me up, with promises of more if I need it.

So with all this rhubarb in my kitchen, it’s time to get baking.  Pies, jam, tarts, muffinscakes…I’ll be making it all if I can!  But the one recipe I’ve been wanting to make for a looooong time now is this Rhubarb Pudding Cake.  I’ve been dreaming of this cake since I saw it last spring…so guess what I made today?  Yes.  A Rhubarb Pudding Cake.  Doesn’t that just sound SO good?
