Taylor's 26th birthday was last week and he wanted me to bake a cake that he loved and remembered from when he was little. I haven't made this cake in years and years, but apparetly it was one of his favourites. So out came the stacks of cook books and papers to try to find the recipe. Thank goodness I found it! Taylor wrote the recipe out on a Labours of Love note pad. The cake was awesome!
The precious little recipe hand printed by Tay,
look at the spelling, "rubarb" and "suger."
Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees
5 cups of Rhubarb
1 cup of Sugar
1 small package of Strawberry Jello
3 cups of Minature Marshmallows
1 Betty Crocker French Vanilla Cake Mix
1. Put the rhubarb in the bottom of a 9" x 13" pan.
2. Sprinkle the rhubarb with the sugar.
3. Next sprinkle on the jello powder.
4. Next sprinkle the mini marshmallows on top.
This is how it will look so far.
5. Make the Betty Crocker (not Duncan Hinds) French Vanilla cake mix according to the instructions on the box, and pour over top of the marshmallows, sugars and rhubarb.
Tap the pan just a little bit on the counter to release any air bubbles.
Pop it into the oven on the middle rack and bake for 50 - 60 minutes, until a tooth pick comes out clean.
This is what it will look like. Just let it cool on a rack.
You can serve it warm or cool, but you definitly serve it with vanilla ice cream.
