MOON CAKE (RHUBARB)

Source unknown except to say the recipe came out of a magazine many years ago. It's a spring favourite.

Preheat oven to 350F

Grease a 9 x 13 pan

Moon cake is so named because, once baked, the top looks like the lunar surface. It is delicious topped with whipped cream and sliced strawberries.

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 egg, beaten
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups sliced rhubarb
1 cup sour milk or buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla

* Cream brown sugar and butter until smooth and creamy.
* Blend in egg.
* In a bowl mix 1/2 cup of the flour into the rhubarb.
* Blend the soda and salt into the remaining flour.
* Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beginning and
ending with flour.
* Fold in rhubarb/flour mixture into batter.
* Add 1 tsp. of vanilla
*Turn into pan. Bake for 45 - 50 minutes.

(Note: to sour milk add 1 tsp. of vinegar to milk.)

Topping

3/4 cup Brown sugar
3/4 cup Walnuts or Pecans

Blend brown sugar with the nuts and spread
evenly over cake batter. Bake as directed.
