I have a question about the recipe "Rhubarb Almond Crumb Cake" from Bob Vivant. Sounds like it's missing liquid. Do you need buttermilk, yogurt, something else in the cake?

Hey helen. I just made this cake this weekend myself, and was somewhat surprised that it didn't have extra liquid or leavening agent. But, the eggs do almost all the work here! Between the eggs and the melted butter, there actually is enough liquid for the small amount of flour the recipe calls for.

Completely agree with Emily. I've also made this cake just as the recipe instructs and have gotten delightful results. Great cake to try!

mmm. this is on my to-do list. but I'm waiting for the local strawberries. Rhubarb (much as I love is) causes my joints to seize -- and that's not a good thing.
