2 cups rhubarb, cut into
1/4 cup sugar

1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
12 tablespoons unsalted
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoons vanilla
small saucepan, combine rhubarb and sugar. Cover and cook over very low heat
until rhubarb is tender.

discarding liquid. Let cool to room temperature.
For Cake Batter:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously butter a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan. Sift
flour, salt and baking powder together.
Beat butter until creamy. Add sugar
and beat until light and fluffy. Whisk eggs and vanilla together and add to
butter mixture. On low speed, add flour mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fold
