This week the spam folder brought me Rhubarb Puffs, and in a fit of ‘why not?’ I decided I was going to make them.  I’d never cooked anything like this before, so… why not?  This blog is partly to get me to make new things, so… why not?

Until I went to the grocery store and found no rhubarb.  I don’t know if I was just looking in the wrong spot, or if they were out, but Wikipedia says it’s in season in early June, and this isn’t early June.  Well, maybe next year I’ll be able to try the recipe.

Rhubarb Puffs

  • Three-quarters cup of sugar,
  • One-half cup of water,
  • Five tablespoons of shortening.
  • One egg,
  • Two cups of flour,
  • Four teaspoons of baking powder,
  • One-half teaspoon of salt,
  • One cup of finely chopped rhubarb (raw).

Put the first three ingredients in a bowl then add the rest.

Beat to mix and then fill into well-greased custard cups and bake for thirty minutes in a hot oven.

I went back to my spam folder and found the subject line associated with this recipe.  It says ‘These 4 Things Happen Right Before A Heart Attack’.  I’d assume eating this recipe isn’t one of them, right?  I found another message with the same recipe and its subject was ‘ Want To Get Out Of The Friend Zone?’.  Interesting combination.  Get out of the Friend Zone then have a Heart Attack and eat Rhubarb Puffs at the same time!

Ok, so that was a little silly.  I’m peeved because I couldn’t make the recipe.  Until next time, toodles!
