Simply the best rhubarb cake you will ever eat!!! Simply the best rhubarb cake you will ever eat!!!
Number of Servings: 16


    1 1/2 cups raw rhubarb cut fine
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 large egg
    1/2 cup (1 stick) Land O Lakes Light Butter
    1 cup Mott's Original Applesauce
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    2 cups flour


In large mixing bowl cream sugars and butter, add egg and salt. Stir in applesauce, soda, vanilla, and flour. Add rhubarb. Pour in prepared 9 x 13 inch baking pan and sprinkle with 1/4 cup white sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes. The cake is very moist and needs no frosting.

Cake could be made with low fat ingredients, I opted not to, so nutrition information is with "regualr" ingredients. It could also yield more servings if wished.

  • This was very good, however, it took some additional sugar to sweeten the rhubarb before adding it to the recipe. I think it could go without the sugar sprinkled on top too, but this was really moist and easy to make - 7/13/12

  • Made this as a half recipe because I didn't want an entire cake sitting around to tempt me. I also substituted Splenda for both the white and brown sugar. It's GREAT! Wonderful flavor. I also used homemade applesauce to eliminate any added sugars from the store bought. - 5/11/10
