“My mother made this often while I was growing up. She's been gone for 13 years, but I still make this at least once a year to rave reviews. No one has ever had anything like this but anyone who likes rhubarb loves it. It makes a lot, but when my husband takes this to work, I only get the empty pan back! Prep time is based on having to cut your rhubarb. If already cut, reduce to 30 minutes.” - by kittymom
Original recipe yields 1 9x13-inch pan
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Mix 2 cups flour, oats, brown sugar, vegetable shortening, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large mixing bowl until the ingredients are crumbly. Reserve 3/4 cup of the crust mixture in a bowl and press remaining crust mixture into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan.
- Spread rhubarb evenly over the crust. Whisk eggs, white sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and 1 pinch of salt in a bowl until smooth; pour the egg mixture over the rhubarb. Scatter the reserved oat mixture over the top. Dust the torte lightly with cinnamon and spread small butter chunks evenly over the top.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the torte comes out clean, about 1 hour. Refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight before serving.

"6/15 Update - made this again yesterday. Split into 2 smaller pans so husband could give one away to coworker! I had exactly 8 cups of rhubarb but have used as much as 10 cups. My mother used to use l..." See moreess sugar because she liked it tart - I like it sweeter. Can omit cinnamon or add to egg mixture. This recipe is quite forgiving."
