Revised rhubarb cake

The rhubarb is growing so fast that I sometimes don't have time to use it before it gets too wooden. But I had some sour cream that needed to be used before I had to throw it away so I decided to make rhubarb squares. My old recipe has a nice texture but is way too sweet so I thought I could improve it by using less sugar - and different sugars as well as adding almonds and ginger.

Mix until crumbly and set aside:
1/3 cup muscovado sugar
1 tsp. ginger
3/4 cup chopped almonds
1 tbsp. butter

Cream together:
3/4 cup raw sugar
1 cup butter
1 egg

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. baking soda

Add to creamed mixture alternately with
1 cup sour cream

Stir in
2 cups rhubarb, cut into ½-inch pieces

Turn into a greased 10x10-inch baking pan.Sprinkle with reserved topping. Bake in 350°F oven 45 to 50 minutes.

  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog! I'm going to try your rhubarb cake-although I may regret turning on the oven tomorrow. It's supposed to go to 95 degrees.
