Dessert By Candlelight

I know it is rhubarb time for many in the North. I made a rhubarb pie last week and was hunting for gourmet recipes from Bed and Breakfast Inns that recipes are tried and true.... I found this recipe from....SQUIRES MANOR.. A lovely Bed and Breakfast in Iowa.... It sounds like a wonderful recipe that would be lovely by candlelight as the evening turns to dusk...

5 slices of white bread cut into little chunks
4 cups rhubard.. diced small
5 eggs beaten
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup half and half
1/4 cup butter or oleo{ melted}
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Place bread and rhubarb into a greased or sprayed 9"x9" glass pan.... Blend other ingredients very well and pour over the bread and rhubarb mixture... Place this pan inside another larger pan filled with water 1" on the rhubarb mixture pan. Bake 45 to 60 minutes. About half way through the baking stir the mixture from inside to the outside to make the baking even.


1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons of butter
1 1/2 teasoons lemon juice
sprinkle of nutmeg
1 cup of water

mix sugar and cornstarch... Add water gradually stirring contantly... boil 5 minutes. add other ingredients and stir... serve over rhubarb bake....

THIS RECIPE HAS A WONDERFUL VICTORIAN ELEGANCE.... By candlelight or by sunlight I am sure this recipe was meant to please rhubarb lovers......
