Spring means Rhubarb!!!


While Annie was out exploring, I decided that the cake mix and box of jello on my kitchen island needed to be transformed.  So I picked some rhubarb and made this Rhubarb Dump cake...because, of course, we need more sweets!!!

  My rhubarb is ruining my raised bed...
It is huge but not real tall - yet!

I used this recipe because my Hubby bought a yellow cake mix and truth be told - I always use butter.

Rhubarb Dump Cake

Cook Time: 1 hour

  • 4 to 5 cups of cubed rhubarb (raw)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 (3 oz) package of strawberry (or raspberry) Jello - may be sugar free
  • 1 white or yellow cake mix (2-layer size, about 18 ounces)
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup melted margarine or butter
Put ingredients in a buttered 9 x 12 x 2-inch pan (I use a glass pan so the rhubarb doesn’t eat the aluminum pan) in even layers in the order that they are given - do not mix. Bake in a 350° oven for 1 hour. Delicious served warm! 

I tasted it...it is yummy and vanilla ice cream will only make it better!!!

So today was a productive day in the kitchen - fried up a pound of bacon (thick sliced) in the oven - made BLT's for lunch.

After picking up auction items, we got our Heggie's pizzas that were a fundraising item for our grandson's mission trip in August so it was pizza for supper.  They are made locally and so very cheesy and good!

Dessert will be our still warm Rhubarb Dump cake...with ice cream.  No calories today!

Take care,


P.S.  I bought a new mop and even used it today.  I'm so impressed with my homemaker self.
