Spring is here!
What a beautiful weekend to work outdoors! It felt so good to get out and scratch around in the good earth. I managed to get all of my backyard flower garden cleaned. It looks much better and it was good for my soul. It makes me feel close to our creator when I’m working in my flowers. I also got the feeders ready for the orioles. They usually come the first week in May but since so many birds came back early, I want to be ready for them just in case. I love to watch them.
I have a correction to make for the rhubarb bar recipe I put in two weeks ago. Under the rhubarb layer it should read 2 Tablespoons of flour instead of sugar. I hope that if you tried it, you figured it out. I’m sorry for the mistake. I do try to proofread the article after typing it but seems I still goof up!
I have another easy rhubarb dessert recipe for you today. I hope you will like it!
Rhubarb Dump Cake:
1 pound cut up rhubarb, 3-4 cups
1 cup granulated sugar
1 3 oz. pkg. strawberry jello
1 yellow cake mix
1 cup water
1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13 inch pan. Spread rhubarb evenly on bottom, then sprinkle sugar and jello over top. Next, sprinkle dry cake mix over and then pour the melted butter and the water over cake mix. Do not stir. Bake for 45 minutes. May serve with whipped topping or ice cream.
