Gluten Free Rhubarb Snack Cake

When I was a tiny tot my mom got this church cookbook not well organized some recipes even without directions!  Now some 35 years later this book is a heap of pages, tattered, torn, and drawn in (barely survived 4 toddlers).  This rhubarb cake was inspired by one of the ingredients only recipes.  With much less sugar and more rhubarb than the original, it has also been modified for my gluten free blend.  The cake is very moist and comes out a little spongy; kids love the texture.  Best enjoyed while still warm.

This is a go-to throw together cake, really no direction needed.  Perfect for company with only an hours notice!

Recipe Notes

I often toss everything, except the rhubarb, into the mixer and just let it run for 3 minutes then fold in the fruit and toss it in the oven.  The topping is optional if leaving it off I put the ginger into the cake.

The original cake was topped with 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.  I found this too sweet and I much prefer ginger with rhubarb.
