Mom's Rhubarb Pie

Mom's Rhubarb Pie

One of the most cherished memories from my childhood is the aroma of mom's delightful rhubarb pie filling the kitchen. Even today, she continues to craft this culinary masterpiece, and let me tell you, it's nothing short of extraordinary. And a well-tested recipe! The way it gently melts in your mouth, leaving behind a symphony of sweet and tangy flavors, is simply irresistible.

Rhubarb, with its striking pinkish-red stalks, is the unsung hero of springtime produce. Despite its tartness in its raw form, when combined with sugar and baked into a pie, it transforms into a delectable treat that captures the essence of the season. Its unique flavor profile, reminiscent of strawberries with a hint of citrus, is what makes mom's pie so memorable.

I recently reached out to mom for the recipe, eager to recreate this nostalgic delight in my own kitchen. True to her loving nature, she not only shared the recipe but also included a charming "recipe" for a bird bath and some snapshots of her flourishing rhubarb patch. It's these thoughtful gestures that remind me of just how wonderful she is.

Below, I'll share the recipe for mom's rhubarb pie, along with her whimsical instructions for the bird bath. It's a testament to her creativity and warmth, and I can't wait to honor her by baking this pie with love.

Mom, thank you for the cherished memories and the enduring love you infuse into everything you do. You're truly one of a kind.

With gratitude and affection,

Mom's Rhubarb Pie Recipe:


  • Rhubarb, chopped into pieces to cover the bottom of a pie dish
  • A sprinkle of oats
  • 175g (6 oz) butter, melted
  • 1 dl (about 0.4 cups) sugar
  • 3 dl (about 1.3 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (about 400°F).
  2. Spread the chopped rhubarb evenly over the bottom of a pie dish and sprinkle a layer of oats over it.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, and vanilla powder until well blended.
  4. Pour the buttery mixture over the rhubarb in the pie dish.
  5. Sprinkle a little more oats on top for added texture.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25 minutes, or until the pie begins to look slightly golden and crispy on top.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.

Enjoy this delightful rhubarb pie, reminiscent of the ones mom used to make, with its perfect balance of sweetness and tanginess.


Instructions for Making a Rhubarb Leaf Bird Bath:

  1. If you happen to find a beautiful large rhubarb leaf, you can repurpose it to create a charming bird bath.
  2. Begin by creating a small mound of sand in a suitable outdoor location.
  3. Place the rhubarb leaf over the mound of sand and gently press it down to create an impression.
  4. Mix fine cement according to package instructions and carefully cover the leaf with the cement mixture, ensuring it fills the impression of the leaf completely.
  5. Allow the cement to set for about a week. If the weather is warm, remember to water the cement lightly every day to aid in the curing process.
  6. After a week has passed, carefully lift the rhubarb leaf to reveal a beautifully crafted bird bath.

    Now, you have not only a delicious rhubarb pie but also a lovely DIY project to enhance your garden with a unique bird bath. Enjoy crafting and nurturing both your culinary and creative talents!
