“Is it a cake? Or are they squares? Guess it depends what size pieces you cut! Has a shortbread crust and crumble topping. Two sizes depending on how much rhubarb you have (be careful when reading the ingredient quantities for each to get the corresponding crust and filling). From my lovely mother-in-law.”
