marcs, any idea of which issue of Foodtown magazine that the recipe was in... . . this year's? last year's or... . . ? :-))

from memory it was it either 2004, 2005 or 2006. I don't have all the issues and it has been posted on here before. I have come to a conclusion that I have misplaced that book but I remember seeing it a couple of months ago. I am in the process of hunting the missing book and I have been through the mangazines that I have about 5 times. lol

I don't think it was 2006 though

If I do Lol I have been through the magazines a dozen times now. I have seen it just recently so hopefully I will see it again.

It said on the Taste search that it was in an Australian Woman's weekly so maybe that is the book you saw it in. Hope this helps

thank you everyone. I will try one of these recipes because I know it turns out really moist. I will keep looking for the recipe that I want. I know it is here somewhere. Shell94 it sounds like the recipe that I am looking for. I remember now that the rhubarb was layered in it rather than mixed all together and thank you 245sam. You are an angel for going through all your books.

griffo4, Oct 8, 8:20am
I just read both recipes and they are the same except for the brown sugar on the topping. Marcs please let us know if it is the one as it was in an Australian Woman's Weekly according to the Taste web site recipe search

marcs, Oct 9, 8:39am
I think it is. I bake for a restaurant which means I don't get to taste it. I have made it and looks pretty moist. I remember the rhubarb being put in the middle rather than mixed in so I am pretty sure it is the recipe.

Our lovely neighbour gave us some rhubarb... I had a search on here and found this recipe. Baked it yesterday and it is utterly delicious! Everyone loves it! What a great recipe board this is :0)
