This is an easy recipe. It tastes good, and you can modify to your taste. Rhubarb is actually a perennial vegetable, not a fruit. Most people are not aware of this, so you can have some fun with it.


  • 8 cups chopped rhubarb (roughly 10-12 good sized stalks), chopped to your preference of size 1/2 - 1 inch.
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 small box of Jello gelatin, any flavor you like
  • 1 stick of butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • Fun spices of choice: cinnamon, almond extract, chopped nuts, cherry or apple pie filling


- Use a glass 13 x 9 inch pan or 2 deep dish glass pie pans. The acid in rhubarb may corrode other type pans.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Pace chopped rhubarb into glass baking dish. Mix sugar and jello and sprinkle on top of rhubarb.

In mixing bowl cut butter into dry cake mix then sprinkle on top of rhubarb.

Bake about 40-45 minutes till bubbling and crust is browned, then remove and cool.


Note: You can add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts to cake mix. You can also use another flavor of cake mix if you like. Add some cinnamon to it too, that the fun of this recipe. You can adjust the sugar to taste up to about 1 cup, but then it might be too sweet.

Servings: 6-8
Prep Time: 1 Hour
Cooking Time: 40 Minutes
