Will – I had the opportunity to take a drive through the country side of southern Manitoba yesterday on a farm machine that we had just purchased. The drive was spectacular as the road twisted an turned through the Pembina Escarpment, remnants of post glacial moraines…wow, how’s that for a history lesson. Anyways, here are some of the moments I captured.
Cut the leaves off and leave them in the garden, then wash and trim the hard white ends off
Dice into 1/2″ chunks
Grease a 9×13 cake pan, cover the bottom with the diced rhubarb and add 3/4cup sugar over top. Use a lot of rhubarb…maybe 3-4 cups
Take approx 1.5-2 cups of marshmallows
To make the batter, mix 1/2 cup softened butter with 1 cup of sugar first. Add 2 whole eggs and whip til this mixture is smooth. Then add 1.75cup of flour, 3tsp of baking powder, 1tsp vanilla and 1/4 cup of milk.
Beat til smooth
Spread down the center of the pan because it’s extremely sticky and this makes it easier to cover the whole area
Bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes
After you take it out, flip it upside down while it’s still warm onto a serving plate. Serve with whipped cream. And I can’t believe that I FORGOT to take a picture of the finished product! AHHHH I guess I was too busy eating…
