My friend Dave always brought two strawberry rhubarb cakes to work to celebrate his birthday. He’d use up rhubarb growing in the yard and treat his co-workers. —Charlene Schwartz, Maple Plain, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 6 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed
  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen strawberries, thawed
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • Optional: Sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix brown sugar and tapioca. Add rhubarb and strawberries; toss to coat. Let stand 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
  3. Transfer rhubarb mixture to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish; pour batter over top. Bake 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Invert each piece onto a serving plate. If desired, serve with whipped cream or ice cream.
