Rhubarb Bread

Nothing says spring than fresh rhubarb and all the yummy things you can make with the pretty red stalks. Our favorite is Strawberry/Rhubarb pie but you know me, I like to try out new and different recipes, so since Saturday was rainy and chilly, I baked bread. And this Rhubarb bread is easy, moist and plain ole good! It's best warm from the oven with some butter spread on evenly and a cup of coffee to make any break pleasant!

Rhubarb Bread
1 c. milk
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. canola oil
1 egg
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. chopped rhubarb ( I run it though the food processor)
1/2 c. walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 and lightly grease two bread loaf pans. In a small bowl, stir together milk, lemon juice and vanilla, let stand while you mix together in a large bowl the brown sugar, egg and oil. Combine flour, salt, b. soda, and cinnamon. Stir in sugar mixture alternately with the milk mixture till just combined. Fold in rhubarb and walnuts. Pour batter into greased loaf pans. Bake for 40 min. or till toothpick comes out clean. Drizzle with cream cheese frosting for a extra treat! Enjoy!
