You know it's really spring when rhubarb is in the markets. That's about the time I begin roasting it to eat with yogurt and ice cream, making crumbles and crisps, and folding it into every cake and muffin batter I can think of. Rhubarb is so delightful because it's slightly tart and ever so bright, complimenting simple buttery desserts and vanilla flavors so well. It wants to saddle up to something a little sweeter than itself -- take Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, for example. Or Strawberry Custard Bars. It needs a sweet side-kick and then, generally, a perfect dessert is born. Here are a few examples of such perfection: • Cinnamon Rhubarb Muffins - Fine Cooking • Rhubarb Orange Pancakes - Coconut and Lime • Orange Rhubarb Snack Bread - The Naptime Chef • Rustic Rhubarb Tarts- Smitten Kitchen • Strawberry Rhubarb Pie - Brown Eyed Baker • Roasted Rhubarb Clafouti - The Kitchn Archives • Rhubarb and Fennel Crumble - Beyond the Plate • Rhubarb Bars - Lara Ferroni • Rhubarb Custard Tea Cake - Eat Little Bird • Rhubarb Cake - Not Without Salt Related: Crumble to Rhubodka: 10 Sweet, Tangy Rhubarb Recipes (Image: Megan Gordon)
