Rhubarb Platz is one of my favorite mennonite dessert recipes. It's good with many kinds of fruit, but rhubarb is my personal fav! I have a bunch of different varieties of this recipe. I have found many in the different mennonite cookbooks that I received for wedding shower gifts. I have used this recipe for the last few times. It comes from the 'Mennonite Girls Can Cook' blog. I've mentioned before how much I LOVE this blog! Anway, I tweaked my recipe a little so here it is if you're interested:
I use my large stoneware bar pan from Pampered Chef for this recipe. The listed amounts of ingredients have already been doubled to accomodate my pan, so if you're using a regular 9 x 13" pan then you should only use 1/2 the amounts of listed ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350*
In a bowl combine: 2 cups flour, 1 cup sugar, 2 tsp baking powder Cut in: 1/2 cup butter with pastry blender. Mix together: 1 cup of milk, 2 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla and add to the dry mix. Pat down into greased pan.
Cut up fruit: I did approx 4 cups of rhubarb and 1/2 cup sugar. Spread over base.
Prepare topping: Combine 2 cups flour, 3/4 cups melted butter, 2 cups sugar. Sprinkle over fruit.
Bake in top 1/3 of oven for 45min - 1 hour ( 30 minutes for a 9 x 13" pan) or until top is nice and golden.
Great with vanilla ice cream!
