Fresh Rhubarb season is upon us and as far as recipes go, I found a good one this time.  What looks more like Cinnamon Rolls when you start turns into something even more scrumptious.  If you love rhubarb and have a sweet tooth you will be making this more than once.

Accessories: For fresh flour your KoMo Mill
Assistent with Stainless Bowl and Roller
Quantity: 12 Dumplings
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

If using fresh flour for this recipe I sifted it to remove some of the bran and germ.  This will keep your dough a bit lighter.   You can see here I used the KoMo Electric sifter that attaches to the mill, if you sift a lot of flour this is a wonderful accessory that attaches to all KoMo Mills, but a quick sift with a hand sifter will work as well. For dumplings pour milk into the stainless bowl and add the butter and then other ingredients.  Mix well on low speed till blended then turn up to about 3 o’clock for 4 minutes.   Allow to rest for 15 minutes this makes rolling easier.  Roll into a rectangle and top with butter, then jam then spread evenly with rhubarb and sprinkle on spices.  Rollup as you do with cinnamon buns and cut into 12 even pieces, less if you want them thicker.  Set this aside and in a small saucepan mix together the sugar and flour then slowly add the hot water whisking to avoid clumping.   Add the remaining ingredients and bring to rolling boil.  Once starts to boil turn down to low boil for 3 minutes stirring frequently to avoid burning.   Pour over dumpling.   Place in preheated oven for 50 – 60 minutes till golden and most of the sauce is absorbed.   I loved mine plain but if prefer it serves nicely with a dollop of whipped cream or some ice cream on the side.  BTW..the missing roll in the picture was delish!!
