Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake

I've baked this cake every spring for many years, and my family loves it! At potluck dinners it disappears quickly, drawing compliments even from those who normally don't care for rhubarb. Use you own fresh rhubarb or find a neighbor who will trade stalks for the recipe! —Helen Breman Marydale, New York
