Here is my Mom’s easy version of a rhubarb crisp that I use all the time. It’s ironic that I will post a recipe here, since I do not excel in the kitchen and I don’t have much desire to….but I have gained a reputation on my street by providing some delicious crisps at neighborhood outings.
I cut up the rhubarb, enough to fix in Pyrex bowl. I also like to add strawberries (optional). I add 1 to 1.5 cups of sugar, with 3 to 4 Tablespoons of Tapioca.... I also either add a teaspoon of lemon juice or grate some orange peel.
After that is mixed up and left to stand for 15 minutes, I just top with a box of Jiffy yellow cake mix and put about ½ stick of butter cubed on top. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Of course it is great with vanilla ice-cream!
I wish you could smell this through the blog… it is wonderful!
This was almost like a 4-H food demonstration!
