Reviews for Rhubarb Flip
"Very easy to make and the flavours are excellent. It reminds me of apple crisp, only with rhubarb.I will make this again, but I think I might reduce the amount of coconut and walnuts; I found it a little heavy and wanted to taste more of the rhubarb. I would also cover it during the last 15 minutes or so of baking, as my topping did burn in a couple of places.Definitely a keeper recipe!"
"I made this (without trying it out first!!!) to guests and they raved. They called it rhubarb pie and I didn't correct them. Yummy and the end-result of toasted coconut and nuts (as mentioned previously) is especially good! I will make again absolutely!"
"Great Recipe! I am not a rhubarb person (never have been). This recipe is really good, looks interesting after it comes out of the oven (the coconut and nuts are toasted). Excellent! Will make again! Now I have a good way to use the rhubarb that goes in yard!"
"When using frozen rhubarb do you thaw it first or just put in frozen?"
"All I can say is . . . YUMMY! This is an excellent recipe! We have made it several times and is a family favorite when the rhubarb is ready in the garden!"
