I was really excited to try this based on all the other reviews. I made it exactly as written, no substitutions. <br/><br/>As I was making it, it seemed like there was way too much topping in proportion to the filling, and I couldn't believe it called for an entire cup of brown sugar in the topping. I should have gone with my gut and could have eliminated about half of the brown sugar in the topping. It was very sweet - too sweet for my taste. <br/><br/>I see now that others doubled the rhubarb and reduced the sugar, but still rated this recipe as 5 stars. Seems like false advertising to me!
WOW! This is the way my Grandma & Mom made it! I added a little cinnamon and some chopped pecans to the topping. I also doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan; MAKE SURE TO USE GLASS - NEVER METAL WITH RHUBARAB! If you add a scant spoonful of sugar just barely sprinkled over the top of the topping, it adds to the browning and gives just a tiny bit of sweetness to the first taste that your mouth enjoys! This topping is equally suited to be the topping for a Dutch Apple Pie - mmm, mmm, good! (Sorry, no picture this time as my family ate this before I got the camera out!)
oh yum yum..made exactly as given..it was excellent..and easy too UPDATE......May 27th 2010 I can't tell you how many times I have made this since I posted my 1st review almost 4 yrs to the day... it is always my 1st choice... and i now know the recipe by heart...but still come for a quick look see to make sure... made it again yesterday I bet i have made this at least 35 to 40 times since my 1st review..

This recipe really doesn't need tweaking, but I did a couple things just for personal taste. I used 1cup of rolled oats in the topping instead of 1/2 cup. I just like the crunch. Didn't need to increase the butter. I also doubled the cinnamon in the topping. Love cinnamon! Sorry, new at this, this bit belong with pbauder's tweak, below.
