    Gorgeous! Impressive looking and tastes great. Took about 15 minutes more to bake completely, but I just kept testing until it was cooked through.  -  26 Apr 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I thought this was a wonderful receipt. I unfortunately did not have any rhubarb do I used what I had in my freezer. I used red currents and made it GF, the cake turned out great. Very moist & my husband loved it and my friends from my MahJong club had two pcs ea.  -  19 Jul 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
