Can I just state how exciting it is to be back into the "eat what you grow" season? I harvested these rhubarb stalks this morning, brought them inside and chopped them up, washed them then bagged them and placed them in the fridge for a couple of hours while I finished yard work. Then, once Hudson was down for his nap, I got to work baking the most delicious cake made from homegrown rhubarb and a freshly picked egg from my coop this morning!
1 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar
2 Cups Flour
1 1/2 Cups Chopped Rhubarb
1/2 Cup Shortening ( I used baking margarine)
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tsp Soda dissolved in 1 Cup Sour Milk (I used 3/4 Cups of Milk with 1/4 Cup Vinegar)
Mix together the above ingredients. Put mixture into a 9x13 pan. This goes on top of cake before baking:
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Margarine
Mix together and sprinkle over batter. Bake 35 mins at 350
Its delicious. You should make it...like, now! Enjoy!
