Easy and quick to make. I like this best with nutmeg but cinnamon is good too.

I've made this gluten free using a gluten free rice flour mix and adding 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum. I've also used whole wheat flour, which works but makes a heavier cake.

Frozen rhubarb works in this recipe. When I use frozen, I mix it into the batter just before spreading in the greased pan.

This is very good served warm with ice cream.
