Please keep it up, and post more pictures. Bakery porn is much appreciated.

Thanks, Fluffy. Next time. A pix with a slice taken out, along with grandma's recipe (link) would be nice for the bakers here. I'm patient, but will be looking forward to reading/seeing it.

Love my food porn!

A nice way to start would be rhubarb sauce. Cut the stalks up into 1/2" pieces, simmer in a small amount of water with sugar/agave/stevia/whatever till tender, tasting and adding sweetener as needed. That would give you an idea as to what it tastes like. Lots of recipes add strawberries, I'm a rhubarb purist, though I did add grated ginger to my last batch.

Or do what a lot of us did as kids, dip a raw stalk in sugar, and munch away!

Fed my refrigerated rye bread dough with, 1 cup water, 1 1/2 cups bread flour, 1/2 cup whole white wheat, and 1/4 cup rye flour. Bubbled up pretty cood before I returned it to the fridge. Have enough dough for about 3 + lbs of rye bread

Granny's Red Velvet Cake

2 1/2 C sifted cake flour
1 1/2 C sugar
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Teaspoon cocoa powder
1 C buttermilk
1 1/2 C vegetable oil
1 Teaspoon white vinegar
2 Large eggs
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Oz. bottle of red food coloring

Preheat oven to 350.
Sift together dry ingredients, then add the rest of ingredients & mix well with mixer. The batter will be thin. Pour into two well greased 9" pans or a 9 X 13 sheet pan. Bake at 350 approximately 25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I don't follow an exact recipe for the cream cheese topping. I start with an 8 oz block of cream cheese, and a tablespoon or so of butter, mixing in powdered sugar until it's as sweet as I want for the day. I add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and if I use a whole box of powdered sugar, I then use a tablespoon or two of milk to thin. Sometimes I like it more cream cheesey then the milk isn't needed because I didn't use as much sugar. Depends on who it's in honor of. Some people want an actual icing to set.

I lent out my round pans so I did a sheet cake & put too much frosting so it's not a beauty this time but taste is excellent.
