This is a family favourite. It's not fancy but it sure is good and there are very few dishes to clean up afterwards -- a definite bonus for me!

This is my first time using rhubarb. I followed the advise of the other reviewers and substituted the nutmeg for the mace (I don't have any anyway). I also added about 1 cup of fresh strawberries. This is a very easy to follow recipe with few items to clean (I love that). I thought 1 cup of sugar with the fruit was a little bit too sweet for me (I like tart fruit). Excellent recipe. I threw in a couple of tablespoon of oatmeat with the topping because I love oatmeal. Thank you.

I found this way too sweet, but my husband enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed this dessert. I made a couple of changes - I added 1 cup of oatmeal to the topping, used 4-5 cups of rhubarb as well as added a quart of strawberries (sliced) and I replaced the mace with cinnamon and it all just fit into a 9" x 13" glass baking pan. I did not double the egg/sugar mixture and it was wonderfully tart, a perfect end to our meal. Thanks for posting and I will make sure that I freeze some rhubarb to enjoy this dessert at other times of the year.
