Even though our garden is overrun with weeds, the rhubarb is undaunted this spring. I made a rhubarb crumb cake to take to lunch with friends and it was a great success.  This cake is quick to make and can be made the day before it is served. rhubarb bowl sm Rhubarb Crumb Cake from a Vermont Kitchen
