Rhubarb Upside-down Cake



There were a couple of requests from some family members over Easter for a Rhubarb Upsidedown Cake

Last week the rhubarb was not ready to be picked.

This week there was enough to make the cake

Everyone seems to love this recipe and I don't limit it to Rhubarb either.  Sometimes I make it with Peaches when they are in season, or Pineapple, or Mango.

The cake is baked in a large cast iron skillet.

Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake


1/2 cup melted butter                             1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar                       1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 cups chopped rhubarb                        1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 eggs                                                   1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups white sugar                            3/4 cup milk scalded
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar, and 4 cups rhubarb in a cast-iron skillet.  Cook over medium heat until the butter and brown sugar have melted and the Rhubarb begins to cook.

In a bowl cream eggs and sugar.  Add vanilla and 1 1/2 tablespoon melted butter.  Mix well.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Add alternately with the scalded milk into the bowl with the egg mixture.  Beat well after each addition.

Pour cake mixture over the rhubarb mixture in the skillet.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees.  Bake for 45 minutes or until the cake tests done.

Notes:

You will need a minimum 14" cast-iron skillet to make this cake.

I have made it in two smaller skillets - but baking time is reduced to about 25 minutes to 35 minutes.

I like making two cakes because we have one to eat and one to give away.


I hope you try and enjoy this recipe.

  1. I have never cooked with rhubarb but your post instructions are so clear it doesn't seem nearly so intimidating -- and it looks delicious!

  2. Not everyone likes rhubarb, Jeanie. The cake is really good, though, so you could try making it with a different fruit. I like it with peaches and pineapple too.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Rhubarb is a little different from other fruits. It is actually not a fruit, but, a vegetable. We tend to treat it as a fruit, although it has to be sweetened. You could use any fruit you like in this recipe, Grammy.

    1. I have been surprised by the number of readers who have not tried rhubarb. Perhaps it is a geographical thing. It grows so abundantly here and we use it often. I hope you have a chance to try it sometime. It is quite good, but needs sweetening.
