This is wonderful!! I did bake it a little longer because it so tall in my 9 x 13 pan.
I am always looking for ways to use the rhubarb that we grow and you certainly can't go wrong when you pair it with fresh strawberries. This recipe is perfect! I didn't have any lemons on hand so I actually substituted some fresh pineapple juice which I happened to have but other than that I made it as the recipe is written and wouldn't change a thing. I will make this again and again and again!
Have made this for years! We LOVE it!
What no cinnimon???
This recipe is amazing! It is a hit with everyone who tries it - and I have been asked to share the recipe many times. I definitely wouldn't change a single thing in this recipe.
