"Many fruits & berries are hugely popular across the Scandinavian countries, but none show more prolific growth or uses than the rhubarb which finds its way into homemade jam, baked goods & a wide variety of other desserts. Taste of Home has been my main rhubarb recipe source & has tempted me w/another recipe that uses rhubarb in an amt that will help me manage my abundant supply of late-summer rhubarb. I'll be ready this year when the rhubarb "floods" my kitchen! This recipe was originally published as "Rosy Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake" in Taste of Home, April/May issue of 2014. Time does not include 10 min cooling time. Enjoy!"
