It has been a busy spring/early summer at Miner Institute, but we've managed to find time for the important things -- like some friendly baking competitions! In May we hosted a rhubarb bakeoff and in June we hosted our annual dairy bakeoff in recognition of June being National Dairy Month. The winner of each Miner bakeoff we host signs their name on a Miner-logoed apron and we share the winning recipes.
Here are the winners of our most recent bakeoffs!
Strawberry Rhubarb Dump Cake
- 1lb rhubarb cut into ¼ inch pieces (3-4 cups)
- 1 cup white sugar
- (1) 3oz. package strawberry Jell-o
- 1 package yellow cake mix
- 1 cup water
- ¼ cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Spread the rhubarb evenly in the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle the sugar over the rhubarb, followed by the powdered jell-o mix and then the dry cake mix. Pour the water and melted butter over the top. DO NOT STIR. Bake for 45 minutes or until the rhubarb is tender. Cool, refrigerate then serve.
