Rhubarb Dessert

It is rhubarb season, so I bring you a simple, yummy recipe that I "stole" from my MIL a few years ago (no, she's really nice and gave it to me ☺) .

2 cups diced rhubarb
1 ¼ cups sugar ~ separated
1 egg
¼ cup cooking oil
¼ cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt


1.  Place diced rhubarb in a greased 9x9" or 8x10" baking dish.  (I didn't have either so I used an 8x8" pan ~  it seemed to work just fine.  The topping was maybe a little thicker than normal, but that's how my hubby likes it anyway, so it was a success!)   
     Then,  sprinkle with ½ Cup of the sugar.

2.  In a bowl, combine egg, remaining ¾ cup of sugar, oil, milk, flour, baking powder and salt.  Stir and pour
     or spoon over the rhubarb.  The batter does spread as it bakes.

3.  Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes.

4. Serve warm with ice cream.


And what a coincidence that Jen Juniper did a tutorial using a rhubarb leaf.  Now we can all craft and eat !  Be sure to check out more great ideas here:
