Sorry to hijack this post. Do you have a Village Inn restaurant nearby? they make a delicious strawberry-rhubarb pie.pavasa said:Oh, people! My mouth is watering!
How I wish I had a slice of rhubarb pie. My brother in law grows rhubarb & makes a truly scrumptous pie. Unfortunately, he lives in Ohio, and I'm Deep in the Heart of Texas and this isn't grown here as far as I know.
Thanks. I thought so as well. Worst is a slightly too wet or too dry cake. My crew will eat it anyways!Loistec said:I think you can substitute the rhubarb for part of the bananas, as long as the volume is the same. If you have a food scale you can gauge it by weight.
Or, if it calls for a cup of bananas just half it and add half a cup of rhubarb. Sounds yummy!
The baked delight sounds great. How do you make the slush?amundson said:Try googling banana rhubarb cake and see what you get. I don't know why just adding the banana would not work. I just found a banana rhubarb recipe in a June 1955 workbasket.
Baked banana rhubarb delight
Wash and cut enough rhubarb in 2" pieces to make one quart. Peel and slit lengthwise 4 ripe bananas. In a greased, shallow baking dish (11x7x1 1/2"), alternate layers of rhubarb and banana, ending with rhubarb. Combine one cup of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt and sprinkle this over rhubarb. Dot with 2 tablespoons of butter. Cover and bake in moderate oven (350) for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for 30 minutes more or until syrup thickens. This may be served hot or cold. Serves 8.
My sister says I should write a rhubarb cook book because I have so many recipes. Have you ever made rhubarb slush? Delicious.
I will probably add ,rhubarb and take away some banana. I will see how it goes and maybe decrease some liquid. Worst case, we will still eat it all!Sherry1 said:I know that rhubarb contains a lot of water. If you google rhubarb banana cake recipe you might have a look at the proportions.
I think that will work. Will see how it goes.Nana5 said:I would use 1/2 of the banana & 1/2 of the rhubarb and just go for it. Experiment is when a new recipe is born! You may just have a new family favorite. Best of luck, let us know how it came out. My husband's favorite pie is Rhubarb, I love the flavor of it.
