Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is a tasty, not tart, recipe with a pleasant nutmeg flavor. Serve warm or cold with or without cream or ice cream.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in 1/4 cup of butter with a fork, or rub between your fingers until it is in small pieces. Stir in the buttermilk just until blended. Spread evenly in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Make a layer of rhubarb over the batter in the dish, then sprinkle 1 cup of sugar over it. Dot with remaining butter. Sprinkle with nutmeg, then pour boiling water over the whole thing.
  • Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the batter is cooked through and rhubarb is tender. Serve warm or cold.
