Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch square baking dish.
  2. Place the rhubarb and strawberries into a bowl. Stir in 2/3 cup of sugar until fruit is coated. Pour into the prepared pan and spread out to cover the bottom. In a medium bowl, beat the remaining sugar with the butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in the egg, orange zest and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter, alternating with the buttermilk. Pour the batter over the fruit in the dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 55 minutes.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Excellent just as written. By the way, "6 stalks" of rhubarb means 3 cups of it (diced or chopped), as a cooking standard.

This is delicious. If you like strawberry rhubarb pie, you'll probably like it. I didn't really taste the orange flavor, but that could be because I didn't have fresh orange zest and had to use dried. Despite that, though, this cake is very light and refreshing. I like the fruit and it'll go into my few beloved cake recipes of applesauce cake and carrot cake (I'm not a big sweets fan). I used a bundt pan and it worked just fine. Thanks!

This was very tasty! At first I was thinking the fruit would end up inside the cake somehow, but it stays on the bottom - sort of like an upside down cake. I haven't really baked with strawberries or rhubarb, and I was hoping the fruit would retain it's color somewhat, but it turned light pink - at first I was disappointed in the appearance, but it still tasted good. The orange flavor comes through nicely - without being too "fruitcakey" - and compliments the strawberries and rhubarb perfectly. Served with real whipped cream - pretty sure I'll make this one again! Thanks for sharing!
