Lunar Cake

A delicious cake made with rhubarb. If you are using frozen rhubarb, allow to drain in a colander before using.


1/2 cup margarine
1 egg
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups chopped rhubarb
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon


Cream together 1/2 cup margarine, sugar, egg, and vanilla until fluffy. Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda, reserving 2 tablespoons flour to sprinkle over rhubarb. Add to margarine mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour. Sprinkle reserved flour over rhubarb. Add rhubarb to batter. Spoon batter into a greased 9 by 13-inch pan. Mix together remaining margarine, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Spread over top of cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.
