People give me rhubarb in the spring so I make them something for it as payment, usually its a pie but this year my neighbors daughters new husband wanted a cake like his grandmother used to make. So went to my grandmothers recipes and found one, he loved it.

The brown sugar cream cheese frosting is my recipe I usually put it on applesauce cake.
