    Thumbs up Holiday goodies...

    We're going to my sister's tomorrow for a bit of a barbeque and visit with the family. Just a nice low-key way to spend the holiday. On another web site that I'm a member of, someone posted a recipe for "Rhubarb Cake". It sounded so good that I couldn't resist and had to make one to take along tomorrow. It just came out of the oven and it looks and smells so good that I'm afraid it may have a corner missing by the time it gets there.

    Cool

    Now that you've got our mouths watering, how about repeating the recipe?

    Thank you...
    Have Fun!

    No problem, here it is. It's very easy to do.

    Rhubarb Cake

    Batter:
    ½ cup softened butter
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup milk
    2 eggs
    1 tsp. Vanilla
    4 tsp. Baking powder
    3 cups flour
    pinch salt

    Filling:
    4 cups rhubarb cut into 1/2” pieces
    ½ cup sugar
    3 oz. Package of strawberry Jello (dry)

    Topping:
    ¼ cup flour
    3 tbsp. Butter
    ½ cup sugar

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 9x13 cake pan with non-stick spray. For batter, in medium bowl combine butter, sugar, milk, eggs, and vanilla. In separate bowl, combine baking powder, flour, and salt. When combined, slowly add flour mixture to milk mixture and beat with mixer until combined. Batter should be fairly thick. Spread batter in prepared pan, set aside.

    For filling, in medium bowl combine sugar and dry Jello mix. Add rhubarb and stir to combine. When combined, place over batter.

    For topping, in food processor combine flour, butter, and sugar. Process until mixture crumbles. Pour topping mixture over batter and fruit. Place in oven and bake for 45-60 minutes. (I did mine for about 55 minutes and it was just about right)

    Remove from oven and cool.

    Allen, you should know by now. Around here if it is a holiday, close to a holiday or a day ending in Y, it is always about the food.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    I have to make that. I love rhubarb anything. Pie is my favorite use for rhubarb though.
