1/2 C butter
1-1/2 C sugar (would advise 2C if you're using organic sugar)
1 C buttermilk*
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2-1/2 C flour
3 C rhubarb, diced
mix together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. Add baking powder & salt to the flour, mix in, alternating with buttermilk. pour into a cake pan (9x13 is good).
here's where it get really good:
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C chopped walnuts or pecans
i left the nuts out of the topping b/c sabin doesn't like them--which mean we put just brown sugar on--it sinks into the dough a little ways and comes out fabulous!
go, make this cake NOW, NOW, NOW!
*i actually used sour buttermilk because that's the kind of thing i find lurking in my refrigerator--it was great!
