Lunar Rhubarb/Strawberry Cake Recipe
Mix: 1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
Beat in: 1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
In a second bowl combine:
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Add the dry ingredients to the first mixture alternately with:
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 Tbsp lemon juice and enough milk to make 1 cup)
Now toss 2 1/2 cups of fruit (diced rhubarb or cut strawberries or a combination of both) in:
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. flour
Mix the fruit gently into the batter. Spoon into a greased 9"x13" cake pan.
Use a pastry blender to combine:
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
Scatter this with your fingertips over cake.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Serve warm and watch it disappear!
By the way, I think this came from the newspaper. The recipe explained that it is called "Lunar" cake because of the craters that the pieces of rhubarb form in it.
