This was sent to me by a very dear friend in Wisconsin. It was a cake her mother in law made.

Ingredients

2 c
fresh or frozen rhubarb
3/4 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
shortening
1 c
flour
1 tsp
baking powder
1/2 c

1 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
The first 6 ingredients are what the cake batter is made of.

Fold rhubarb into batter.
Mix topping together then sprinkle over top of batter then--
Pour carefully over the top of it 1 cup of boiling water.
(if it looks like the 1 cup of water is going to overflow a pan then just use enough to not overflow the pan or baking dish - it's a real mess in your oven if it does drip over .
use tin foil on the bottom of a baking sheet to prevent spills).
Bake for approx. 45-50 minutes at 375 degrees (a little longer if you double the recipe for a larger baking dish).
2
the last 3 ingredients are for the topping.
