My friends love it when I make this dessert. I do add some vanilla and nutmeg to the custard mixture...also some walnuts to the base. Yummo.
I looooove rhubarb and CountryLady's picture is gorgeous!! A great recipe Gerry, I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and it was perfect for us. I just love the tart rhubarb with the creamy sweet custard-like filling!
What a delectable dessert! Turned out to perfection. Served this to guests and they absolutely loved it. I did scale back the sugar to 11/2 cups since the rhubarb I used is a strawberry rhubarb which is sweeter. This is one rhubarb recipe that will be close at hand. Thank-you so much Gerry for posting this recipe.
While on a mini camping trip, I made this for our friends. While I do not like rhubarb, hubby and our friends went wild. They said it is definitely worth 5 stars and asked that I make it again. Thanks for sharing, Gerry999.
While this was good, it was too sweet for me (I like rhubarb desserts that make you pucker up) but my husband (Mr Sweet Tooth)loved it! I scaled the recipe in half & used a 7" round baking dish; however, I found the base & topping levels a little too thick. I think an 8" or 9" square pan would work much better. I sprinkled a little coconut on top as you advised. Thanx Gerry!
