  4. Beat eggs in a large bowl; mix 1/4 cup flour, white sugar, half-and-half, and salt into eggs, beating until smooth.

  • Cook's Notes:
  • This is good warm or cold. It will hold together when cold so you don't need a plate.
  • Try using wheat or oat flour instead of all-purpose flour.

We LOVE rhubarb so I'm always looking for new recipes. This one far exceeded my expectations. My husband says it's company worthy! Add a little whipped cream or ice cream and it's even better...

This will turn out good if you double the rhubarb to 8 cups and the custard is fine as it is, but the crust was way too sweet. It was good when we added just 1/4 cup or even 3 TBS of sugar to th...

VERY GOOD added 1 tsp real vanilla and 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg it says 4 cups which is perfect for this NOT 4 pounds as gogogadget stated as "to much" 4# would be way to much .

This dessert was so bad that I am writing my first review ever. First, you can tell from the photo that there is way more than the 4 cups rhubarb listed . I followed the recipe exactly and it ...

Fabulous! A friend from Alaska gave me several packages of frozen rhubarb...this will definitely be my go-to rhubarb dessert. Everyone who tried it raved.

This is very nice, not tart to my taste. I added a tsp of cinnamon to topping, and a bit of vanilla to filling. Because I do like a bit of tartness, may add another cup of rhubarb next time. ...

Very good. Cut the sugar in the custard by 1/2 cup because I know I love the tart tang of rhubard. Added 1/2 blueberries for more color. Took to father's day, mine went quick.
