Rhubarb & Strawberries Upside down cake

Rhubarb upside down Cake is a classic and since it is also strawberries season so i threw few strawberries as well and believe me the result was just exquisite . Rhubarb cakes are so special to my heart because i tried Rhubarb for the first time only few years ago and the first time was in an upside down cake . I immediately fell in love with it's sharp sour taste contrasting the vanilla flavoured cake . The recipe is actually one of the simplest things to make on a lazy weeknight , i will let you judge by yourselves i hope that you will like it .
