DEAR SUNSPOT: In response to your request for more rhubarb recipes, here’s a delicious one! My aunt had a prolific rhubarb patch which was in all its glory on my birthday every year. It was tradition for her to invite me and serve me this cake. She did so until her death at the age of 83. She would like me to share this recipe with Sun Spotters! It does not contain eggs, so it is a good dessert recipe for allergy sufferers. You can replace rhubarb with cranberries in the fall/winter.
Rhubarb Cake with Sauce: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together 4 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 4 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Stir in 2 cups of milk and 6 tablespoons of melted butter. Add 4 cups diced rhubarb. Stir until combined.
Pour the batter into a buttered 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Take out of the oven and let cool down.
To make the butter sauce, combine 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup sugar and 3/4 cup cream in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
To serve, cut into pieces of cake and serve with a generous amount of hot butter sauce. The sauce can be reheated gently on the stove or in the microwave if needed. Pour over cut pieces of cake before serving. — Jess, no town
TO RESPOND: It looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it.
