The rhubarb is in full force so I went on the hunt for the rhubarb recipe I made last year that everyone loved. I checked the blog…no recipe. UGH. That meant I need to start looking through the recipe books. I’ll admit, I have many so the task was a little daunting. Luckily for me it was in the first recipe book that I checked.
2/3 vegetable oil
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
1 cup sour milk (I just added a couple Tablespoons of vinegar to sour mine)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking sode
1 1/2 cups diced rhubarb
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1/4 c more flour
Cream together shortening and brown sugar. Add egg, vanilla, almond flavoring and sour milk. Add flour and soda. Stir in rhubarb, nuts and 1/4 cup more of flour. Mix well and pour into 2 well greased and floured loaf pans. Sprinkle a topping mixture of-
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon melted butter
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Cool completely.
My family ate it in a snap and then came looking for more!! Sadly I didn’t have more but I did have Strawberry Rhubarb Pie to keep them at bay.
Craig had a piece today and declared it the best pie he has ever eaten…if you missed that recipe, you can find it here.
