Camano Island is a small island just North of Seattle. This version of an upside down cake was a huge hit at family gatherings. Easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. I don't know about everybody else, but I have a bumper crop of Rhubarb in my garden this year. Already made pies and stewed Rhubarb, here is another idea to put it to good use.
