If Iceland had “national fruits”, #1 would be rhubarb & blueberries would be a close #2. Both are very popular, grow in the wild & most gardens & yield bumper seasonal crops. We live on the 3rd floor of a condo bldg (hence no garden), but I share in the rhubarb bounty each yr thanks to its lrg volume & the generosity of 2 friends. 1 friend even cleans it, cuts it in segments & packages it in freezer bags for me. For this recipe, I used my last bag of 2017 frozen rhubarb & fresh imported blueberries since we are off-season now for both fruits. All that said, we loved this cake! I will chg 1 thing when the new rhubarb crop arrives. Both Siggi & I were esp fond of the cake, but less fond of the amt of the crunchy brown sugar topping & felt half the amt would be ideal for us. This recipe made an enormous cake that rose to the top of my 9x13 baking dish. My next effort will be to try a half recipe for just 2 of us (I usually ignore trying to split 1 egg in most baked goods). Thx for sharing this great recipe, Kitten. I’ll be ready when the new crop of rhubarb arrives this summer. (A pic will post later today)
