Now, I did't have a recipe for my mom's homemade rhubarb rolls. And there probably isn't one. She's a "take some of this and, you know, as much as you need of that" kind of a baker. So I was on my own. And so I made some yesterday off the top of my head. And it was so yummy!! Like my mouth is filling with water type of yummy! We ate it warm with vanilla ice cream and hot rhubarb sauce/stewed rhubarb.
I started out with my Dad's super duper biscuit recipe. Norwegian in brackets for my Norwegian friends.
4 cups flour (mel)
1/2 cup sugar (sukker)
1 tsp salt
6 tsp baking powder (bakepulver)
1 tsp baking soda (natron)
1 cup shortening (melange)
2/3 cup buttermilk (kulturmelk)
2/3 cup milk (melk)
Blend all dry ingredients together well. Blend in shortening. Add milk and buttermilk to make dough. Sprinkle enough flour to make it dry enough to handle by hand.
At this point instead of cutting it out into biscuit shapes, I rolled the dough out ino a rectangle. I put some butter on, then sprinkled some sugar and 3-4 handfuls of sliced rhubarb. Roll up and cut into slices.
Lay the slices into a pan.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream or even just plain cream, topped with the hot rhubarb sauce. *drool*
I would love to show you a picture of the finished product in all it's sticky glory but I was so busy eating, I forgot to take one. So you'll have to make it yourself to see how it turns out. ;)
