Old-Fashioned Rhubarb Torte Recipe

Rhubarb is probably one of the hardiest plants, especially in northern states like mine. It has a tart taste to it, which we really enjoy in our family. Every time I've served this torte to someone who's never had it before, I wind up writing out the recipe for them - and it's my pleasure to share it!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 5 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • Whipped cream

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour, confectioners' sugar and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Pat into a 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes.

"Great recipe. I would probably double the crust, only because I like a thicker crust."

"Delicious! I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to the egg mixture. Try it... the added flavor is wonderful. I also served it with ice cream."
