A close cousin of Pineapple Upside-down Cake, long a favorite of us at Home Cookin’  – this version is adapted from Taste of Home (if you do not like the tartness of rhubarb, stick to the pineapple-upside down cake, click on link above)–but spring is rhubarb seasons and a good time to experience and experiment with rhubarb.

Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake


3 cups sliced fresh rhubarb (1 ½-inch slices)
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose four
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ cup butter, melted



1 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ cup butter, melted
2/3 cup milk
1 egg
Sweetened whipped cream (optional)

 For topping, sprinkle rhubarb in a greased 10-inch heavy skillet.

Combine sugar, flour and nutmeg; sprinkle over rhubarb. Drizzle with melted butter.

For batter, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a mixing bowl.

¼ cup melted butter, milk and egg; beat until smooth. Spread over rhubarb mixture.
Bake at 350° F. for 35 minutes or until the cake tests done.
Loosen edges immediately and invert onto serving dish.
Serve warm, topped with (or accompanied by) sweetened whipped cream.
