Looking for a quick and easy rhubarb dessert?
Look no further! This Rhubarb Bar recipe comes together quickly with only 6 ingredients!
Rhubarb is a delicious, unique flavored vegetable. It is very tart when raw but add it to a sweet dessert and its amazing tart/sweet flavor is a real crowd pleaser. Rhubarb itself may be a healthy vegetable, but I won’t try to claim this to be a healthy recipe, it isn’t- not by any stretch of the imagination. However, since rhubarb isn’t always in season I think its okay to indulge once and awhile ;).
A great variety of rhubarb recipes can be found online (check out these mouth-watering Heavenly Rhubarb Muffins and Rhubarb Peach Jam) but I guarantee that once you make these bars, they will become a family favorite :). It will be hard to not eat the whole pan (if you do, no judgement here) once you try one custardy, sweet/tart bar.
This recipe is for a large 9×13 pan but you can easily cut all the ingredients in half to make a smaller 8×8 pan if you aren’t feeding a crowd.
- 4 cups chopped rhubarb
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup butter
Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a food processor (can be done by hand), pulse together the flour, sugar, and butter until completely incorporated. Press into the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan. Bake in oven for 10 minutes to set (do not brown).
Mix together the eggs, sugar, flour and salt for the filling and stir in the diced rhubarb. Pour over prepared crust. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until nicely browned. The middle should still be slightly “wiggly” when the pan is moved- this will set to a beautiful custard-like consistency. Cool and enjoy!!
