Directions

  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Stir in water; add butter. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and, if desired, enough food coloring to tint sauce a deep pink; set aside.
  2. For dough, in a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and mix quickly. Do not. Gather dough into a ball and roll out on a floured surface into a 12-in. x 9-in. x rectangle. Spread with softened butter; arrange rhubarb on top.
  3. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over rhubarb. Roll up from the long side and place on a cutting board, seam side down. Cut roll into 12 slices. Arrange slices cut side up in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Pour sauce over. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 12 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2012

"I would suggest cutting into 6 pieces and put in an 8x8 pan. It is really hard to cut the roll with the chopped rhubarb inside into 1 inch slices. I reduced the amount of sugar and water in the sauce and added some rhubarb syrup instead to increase the rhubarb taste."

"We absolutely love this recipe. I have been making it every year since it first appeared in Taste of Home back in 1993. I cut the recipe out and used it every time but it's getting tattered so now I'm printing off a new copy. My entire family loves this dessert."
