Rhubarb and strawberries are one of Mother Nature’s natural flavor combinations. The tanginess of rhubarb matches perfectly with the sweetness of strawberries. And, they both look so darned pretty when they’re tucked away neatly into this super moist and flavorful Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake.

The ingredient list for Old-Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake is as follows:

  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Fresh Rhubarb
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Almond Extract
  • Canola Oil
  • Butter
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Vanilla Ice Cream for serving

This Old Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake is super simple to make. It only takes a few easy steps. The first is cutting the rhubarb and strawberries into chunks and then to macerate (soften and infuse) them in a bit of sugar for 30 minutes before assembling the rest of the ingredients.

The instructions are easy;

  • Place the cut rhubarb and strawberries in a medium-size bowl with ¼ cup of granulated sugar.
  • Stir well. Set aside and allow the fruit to macerate (soften and drink in the sugar) for 30 minutes.

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, blend together the eggs, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter,  vanilla and almond extract and the canola oil.
  • Slowly blend in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt until stiff batter forms. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir in the macerated berries until fully incorporated.

  • Scrape the batter evenly into a prepared bundt pan that has been sprayed liberally with baking spray.
  • Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove and cool on a wire tack for 15 minutes.

  • Invert the semi-cooled cake onto a serving platter and allow to cool completely before dusting with confectioners sugar and adding strawberries as a garnish, if desired.

The batter for this cake is thick….really thick, but that’s what enables the fruit to stay wonderfully suspended throughout the entire cake, and not sink to the bottom (make that the top) of the cake, when the cake is inverted.

In almost each and every forkful you take of this Old Fashioned Strawberry Rhubarb Bundt Cake you’ll have a plump piece of strawberry or rhubarb, which will excite and delight every one of your Mother Nature’s springtime taste buds.

Now, who wouldn’t love a slice of this?! Except for my dad…who said.. and I quote… “I don’t like rhubarb, but I’ll have a scoop of ice cream!”

Seriously?!! Been there…said that…AND I’ll happily admit to being 100% wrong!

Rhubarb ROCKS people!  I hope you’ll try this recipe before rhubarb season is a thing of the past. If you don’t, you’ll have to wait another whole year!

By the way, you can find rhubarb stalks in the produce section (for a limited time in the spring) right where they sell the fresh strawberries. Look for them…you won’t be sorry!
