Sorry, but I was away camping… Sometimes you just need a little a bit of time to recharge! Being out in the beautiful outdoors really helps with that!
We are now in the middle of Rhubarb season!!!
Love it or hate it! People have some very strong opinions about rhubarb! I have never met anyone who was in the middle. Personally, I love rhubarb!!
The rhubarb in my garden is growing so well!I love putting strawberries and rhubarb together in dishes such as Strawberry Rhubarb Pancakes and Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. This time I was looking to make a recipe just with the rhubarb. Not that you couldn’t cut the rhubarb in half and use half strawberries. I am sure that would be delicious!
This cake is a combination of tangy on the bottom from the rhubarb and sweet from the topping. Delicious for any gathering!
