Rhubarb Cake

This is my dad’s recipe – I wish he was still here to make it for me, but when I make it, it is just as good (almost!).

Cream together:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla

Fold in:
2 cups rhubarb (add a tablespoon of flour to the rhubarb and ‘toss’ it together in a bowl first)

Pour into a 9″ x 12″ greased pan.

Mix with a pastry cutter:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Sprinkle on top of cake mixture

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Extra yummy if served warm with whipped cream or ice cream, but it is delicious cooled without as well.
