    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly spray the tube pan or Bundt pan with canola oil cooking spray.
    2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the brown sugar, canola oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until lighter in colour (2-3 minutes).
    3. In a large bowl, whisk together the brown rice flour, sorghum flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, and salt.
    4. With the mixer running on low speed, add half of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
    5. Add the sour cream and run the mixer until nearly blended.
    6. Scrape down the bowl before adding the remaining dry ingredients.
    7. Use a rubber spatula to fold the rhubarb into the batter.
    8. Spread the batter into the prepared pan.
    9. Bake in preheated oven for 65-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a cake comes out clean.
    10. Allow to cool in pan for 30 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Cool completely before covering with plastic wrap.
