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!


  1. oh this sounds so yummy for my tummy...can you send some through please? right now.. I have milk...:)

  2. Oooo! With a cup of tea this sounds fabulous. Gotta tell you, my friend, I have not been this well fed in a long time. Your recipes are easy and delicious and I thank you for sharing them with us. xxoo

  3. Yummy! My mom used to make THE best rhubarb pie. Boy how I miss it!

    I have never heard of rhubarb bread, though. I am going to give your recipe a try!


  4. Oh that looks and sounds so good. I have never had Rhubarb but I might have to try this one.

  5. Yum! I have never heard of rhubarb bread! I love strawberry rhubarb pie so I bet the bread is awesome.

    All the best,

  6. oh, yummm! Sue
    This recipe sounds so good. I'll be looking for some rhubarb at the farmer's market on Saturday!

  7. I grew up eating rhubarb out of the garden - dipped in sugar of course, and pies and jams made with it too. This recipe sounds perfect for early spring. I bet Dh would like this one!

  8. I have to admit, I don't think I've ever had rhubarb anything but your bread looks very inviting. I might have to give it a try. You might already know this but I found Debbie Meyers bread bags in the grocery store the other day...and they work! I've always seen the veggie bags but this was a first finding the bread bags.

  9. This looks delicious, Sue! I like rhubarb on buttered toast. Also strawberry rhubarb pie!

  10. Oh this looks YUMMY! I was just enjoying your blog and realized that you are from West Plains. My Great Grand parents lived and died there. I think they died in the early 70's. My Grandfather owned a chain of shoe stores and they had a lovely home which was donated to a hospital when they died....I'm sure there is no trace of them now...
    Nice to meet you!

  11. That sounds good. I love any kind of hot bread! Hope you are staying drier up there than we are down here!

  12. Yum, Sue! I love rhubarb. We are going to the farmer's market on Friday. Maybe they will have some and I can make your cake for Mother's Day. :) That would be a treat.
    You always share the best stuff.
