Last week I got some rhubarb from J’s Auntie. I made some freezer jam; J and my Dad always request jam. I also flipped to a rhubarb dessert recipe in the Family Cookbook. After eating kebabs for supper this was a very sweet way to round out the meal.
1 Yellow Cake Mix and Ingredients as called for on back of cake mix box.
4 C. chopped rhubarb
2 C. sugar
1 can (12 oz) Evaporated Milk
Mix up cake mix according to directions on the box. Put in a deep 9 X 13 inch pan. I made 2 – 8 X 8 pans.
Sprinkle 4 cups chopped rhubarb over the uncooked cake.
Sprinkle 2 cups sugar over the rhubarb.
Pour evaporated milk over the top. I have also heard of ladies using cream instead of evaporated milk.
Put the unbaked dessert on a cookie sheet or something that will catch any gooiness that may run over the top of the cake pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until golden brown on top and tests done in the middle. My 2 – 8 X 8 pans of dessert took forever to bake and I am not sure why! I am thinking it is the same something that tinkered with the grill knob.
This is a sweet custard like dessert and a great way to enjoy fresh rhubarb!
