Rhubarb Dump Cake

Rhubarb Dump Cake

Rhubarb season is here! Oh, do I LOVE rhubarb! I make pies, sauce, cake, crisps and jam. Usually I have my favorites, but this time I tried a new recipe. Honestly, it is so easy and while the name ” Rhubarb Dump Cake” doesn’t sound wonderful, it just actually describes what you do with the ingredients. No mixing! I promise that this will be one of your favorites, too!

Just look at the outcome!

4 cups rhubarb – don’t skimp! (Cut into 1/4 inch pieces)

1 cup sugar

1  4 oz  package of Strawberry Jello (I used sugar-free)

1 package yellow cake mix

1 cup water

1/4 cup butter melted


In a greased glass pan, place the chopped rhubarb.

Put yellow cake mix over the rhubarb mixture

Pour one cup of water and 1/4 cup of melted butter over the top.

Do not mix!

(I merely moved the water around gently with a fork to all the areas of the cake mix)

Bake @350 degrees for 45-55 minutes until very lightly browned

  26. It looks yummy. I know my girls will love it. I’m stopping by to Say G’day from the Say G’Day Saturday Party. Have a fantastic day and see you again soon.

    • Thanks for stopping by!

  27. Rhubarb used to be something I didn’t like as a child. It was too tart for my unsophisticated taste buds, but now I really like it! I prefer things that aren’t too sweet. A far cry from the ‘twinkies’ and ‘hostess cupcakes’ of my childhood. :).

    You’re right about the name, but Dump cakes are super easy and good. One of these days I will have a garden with rhubarb, but for now I’ll rely on the farmer’s market. This is one recipe I’ll be making soon. Thanks Oma!

    • You’re welcome! Enjoy!

  28. I have a very similar recipe and LOVE it! Thank you so much for linking up at Weekend Potluck. Please do come again soon.

  29. This looks delicious.

    So glad I stopped by from WW at Sincerely, Paula

    • I’m glad you stopped by, too! When your strawberries are ready, come back for a future post on Blueberry or Strawberry Pie!

  32. PINNED!!! Thanks so much for linking to What to do Weekends. I think I’m going to love this recipe. We’re having a party this week and I’m going to try it…. I might substitute blueberries. Would that be okay? I don’t know how many people like rhubarb… Best wishes for a great weekend. linda

    • Blueberries are much sweeter! Try it and let me know how it works! Actually, everyone likes rhubarb this way so you might want to try it! Thanks for pinning!
