Rustic Rhubarb Cake

This Rustic Rhubarb Cake is somewhat delicate, so it wouldn’t work well for a bake sale, and we like it when freshly baked; that’s when its center is almost creamy and custardy. The sugar on top adds a nice crunch and the rhubarb cooks up into tender mouthfuls of tartness. We have made this with lactose-free sour cream as well as lactose-free yogurt. The sour cream produces a cake that is a bit more custardy in the center, but either work. If you do use yogurt, choose full fat. Get the recipe for Rustic Rhubarb Cake.
