More of a pie with a crumble topping than a cake, but still gorgeous. I didn't make this one up, it is from an old magazine, but well worth sharing.

Absolutely brilliant! Made this for a dinner party as I had a lot of excess rhubarb growing in my garden and the result was very impressive! Definately more of a pudding than a cake but tasted fantastic - thanks for sharing this recipe!
