My Mom has made this recipe as far back as I can remember! Every spring I still get so excited when the rhubarb comes up – I can’t wait to bake this and smile as I remember my younger days. It makes into a deliciously moist cake that is light and springy and fills your home with the wonderful smell of cinnamon. Bake up some memories this spring for your family.
