Rhubarb Bread

on May 9, 2014

It’s that time of year again.

Our gardens are chock full of those ruby red stalks with the humongous green leaf on top.

Last Thursday my rhubarb was only about 3 inches high.


Monday I went out there and it was growing like crazy.

This is what it looks like now!



Time to bake something with it!!

So today’s recipe is a very quick and easy one that would be just right for your Mother’s Day brunch.

Rhubarb Bread

Rhubarb Bread 2

You get 2 loaves out of this recipe – one for your brunch and one for the freezer.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Rhubarb Bread

Mix together:

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

2/3 cups salad oil (I used canola)

1 egg

1 cup sour milk (I make this using 1 cup milk and 1 T. vinegar)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups diced rhubarb

Pour batter into two greased loaf pans.

Mix together and sprinkle over batter for topping:

1/2 cup white sugar

1 Tablespoon butter

(I’m not sure if the butter is supposed to be melted, but I used softened butter and this made a nice crusty topping.)

Bake at 325 degrees for about 60 minutes.


This recipe makes 2 loaves or 1 big loaf and 3 small loaves.


The smaller loaves are great for gift giving.


The larger loaf shows the bits of diced rhubarb in the bread and there’s the crusty sweet sugary topping.


Rhubarb has a million different uses and this is a very easy way to use it.

Go ahead – shock your mother.

Make this bread and serve it for your Mother’s Day brunch.

She’ll appreciate it.

It’s delicious.
