Rhubarb Crumble Cake

What you need: 

Cake dry ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger Cake wet ingredients:
3 tablespoons oil
1 1/2 cups sweet stewed rhubarb
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Filling:
9 teaspoons strawberry jam Crumble topping:
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup flour
4 heaped teaspoons sugar
3 heaped teaspoons vegan butter

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For cake, sift together the dry ingredients and mix. Create a well in the center and fill with wet ingredients. Mix until just combined.
2. Transfer 1/2 the batter to a loaf tin. Distribute the jam filling over the batter. Top with the remaining batter.
3. For crumble topping, using your fingers, mix dry ingredients and rub the vegan butter into the dry ingredients until a crumbly consistency is reached.
4. Take 1/2 the crumble mixture and place it on top of the cake mixture, pressing it in slightly. Add the remaining crumble mixture. Transfer to oven and bake until firm, about 30-40 minutes.
My oven is seriously shiitake, and so it took about 2 hours in there. If you have a good working oven, keep an eye on it!
Source of recipe: I stewed some rhubarb, not knowing that you didn't need water, so I had a big pot of soupy stewed rhubarb which I was not willing to let go to waste. Thus, this cake was born.

I just made this cake; it came out great. However, I made a couple of changes. I don't know if the author forgot to mention water or he/she didn't need it, but I added about 1/2 cup of water to the dough and then mixed it with the fresh rhubarb. It took about an hour to bake the cake.
Thanks for such a wonderful and easy recipe!
