“This recipe is from my co-worker's mother. It is his favorite cake - has requested it every year for his birthday for as long as he can remember. He brought it to work last month and oh my.....YUMMY!!! I don't like rhubarb - but this is awesome!! A definite treat to try! Thanks Wil! Prep time DOES NOT include chill time.”
