Rhubarb Lemon Cake

Because I have wonderful rhubarb plants, they are prolific so I try to create recipes using it. Here is my latest experiment: Rhubarb lemon cake, with lemon strawberry frosting.
Because this is an experiment, I will cut the recipe in half.
Blend these ingredients: 1 cup rhubarb pie filling that's been cooked down like applesauce, 1 egg, half a box of lemon cake mix and half a cube of butter. Place in 9" by 9" pan and bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Then enjoy with your family.
We sat by the river to eat our spaghetti....
but not for long...
The wind started picking up speed....
We heard thunder...
We saw gorgeous lightning...
Our windmill began spinning very fast...
So it's back inside for some wonderful rhubarb lemon cake with lemon strawberry frosting.
Frosting recipe: 1/3 cup milk, 1/3 cup butter and 1 cup powdered sugar. Boil one minute on the stove. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp lemon extract, one dot of yellow food color, and 6 0z sour cream. Pour over cake and decorate with fresh strawberries. Your family will love it. Enjoy! Love, Kathi

The cake looks absolutely wonderful! I bet it was good too. On my cake dvd, it says to use a cake mix and a half, so your half a box made sense to me! LOL

I'm sorry I haven't been by lately. Time seems to really get away from me as of late and I can't seem to catch up. I've sure missed coming by though.
