Rhubarb was something that I always said no to. It looked funky and I assumed it tasted even worse. But last year, during our trip to Germany and the Czech Republic, I was served a piece of Rhubarb Cake and I fell in love. Head-over-heels, shout-it-from-the-rooftops love, mind you. It came from the kitchen of a dear friend’s mother and it couldn’t have been more perfect. I made that trip over ten months ago and I’m still trying to get the recipe. Guess I need to brush up on my Czech and write a few more letters. 😉
Dorie’s crisp is similar, in that it has that rustic, homemade, heartfelt taste. It’s quick, flavorful and aside from being completely adaptable to any palate, it’s one that makes for the perfect anytime treat. This recipe will definitely show up again at our Summer cookouts… and maybe even before then!
Sarah of Teapots and Cakestands is this week’s hostess. Head on over to her blog to grab the recipe… and to see how the other TWD members adapted this crisp to their own tastes, check out this week’s ‘Leave-Your-Link’ post!
