However, besides playing Uno together and with the kids we covered mostly vegetables and use of rhubarb. She kindly sent me this recipe for "Rhubarb-Torte", for which she will not divulge the calorie content per slice. Yes, seeing it is mostly butter and whipping cream, we understand why this recipe is a winner. Find the recipe below. Don't blame me, if it's not what you should be baking. And DO NOT ask me if I need any rhubarb. Rhubarb grows abundantly here and I have enough for the entire town.
H.S. also sent me the link to her congregation's website. I have to look at it more. Really, there is no excuse for not every congregation having a website of some sort, no matter how unsophisticated. I wish I knew how to build one. How should one get started? Should ask my smart daughter. (Sorry, I noticed the link does not work. Have to try again.)
Creamy Rhubarb Torte
Take 200 grams of lady fingers, put in a bag and crush with a rolling pin (or put in mixer).
Take 125 grams of soft butter
and knead the two items above into a mix; cool in the fridge (1 hour).
450 grams of cleaned up rhubarb, cut small; cook for 3 min. with 150 grams sugar, 2 packages vanilla sugar (buy some vanilla sugar in your store; it is a nice ingredient for most baking) and 4 tablespoons Granadine/Raspberry syrup. Puree, if you like it smooth.
Add 9 leaves dissolved red gelatine ( I would probably used two or three packages Knox gelatine; don’t have red colored, though. Get color somewhere.) and add to mix that has cooled a little.
Add 500 gram low fat quark (find in deli section) with 1 pk Vanillasugar and add under rhubarb mix.
Whip 400 gr of whipping cream and add to mix; put over crumb bottom and let set for 12 hours.
Shopping list: lady fingers, butter, quark, cream.
