Rhubarb Bread

The rhubarb is in full force so I went on the hunt for the rhubarb recipe I made last year that everyone loved.  I checked the blog…no recipe.  UGH.  That meant I need to start looking through the recipe books.  I’ll admit, I have many so the task was a little daunting.  Luckily for me it was in the first recipe book that I checked.

Here’s the recipe.

2/3 vegetable oil
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
1 cup sour milk (I just added a couple Tablespoons of vinegar to sour mine)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking sode
1 1/2 cups diced rhubarb
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1/4 c more flour

Cream together shortening and brown sugar.  Add egg, vanilla, almond flavoring and sour milk.  Add flour and soda.  Stir in rhubarb, nuts and 1/4 cup more of flour.  Mix well and pour into 2 well greased and floured loaf pans.  Sprinkle a topping mixture of-
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon melted butter

Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.  Cool completely.

My family ate it in a snap and then came looking for more!!  Sadly I didn’t have more but I did have Strawberry Rhubarb Pie to keep them at bay.

Craig had a piece today and declared it the best  pie he has ever eaten…if you missed that recipe, you can find it here.

  1. Just getting ready here to make a Strawberry Rhubarb pie to celebrate my mother in law’s 90 birthday ! Thinking about doing a blackberry pie, too.

  2. Yum!

    Here’s another good one we just had at a quilting get-together:

    Rhubarb Bars
    2 cups flour 1 cup soft butter 2/3 cup powdered sugar
    Mix together and press into jelly-roll size pan and bake at 350*f for 15-20 minutes or until slightly browned.
    Mix: 2 1/2 cups sugar, 4 beaten eggs and 1/2 cup flour. Add 4 cups fine diced rhubarb. Pour over cooled crust and return to oven for 40 minutes.
    Add a few diced strawberries if you want. I don’t wait for the crust to cool before adding the rhubarb mixture and it turns out fine.

  3. This recipe looks great. Love rhubarb. I have a rhubarb recipe similar to Lorraine’s above except it has a meringue on top. My and my son’s favorite.

  4. I used that same recipe, but it said to put in 1 loaf pan. Can you say disaster? I was not a happy camper, and I made a double batch!

  5. Oh they all look and sound delicious. Rhubarb is hubby’s favorite. I never had it until I married him. I love it too. However, no rhubarb in Texas where we live. Lucky for me I’m in Missouri visiting my parents this weekend. Maybe I can come up with some and take it home. Thanks for sharing.
