Fabulous Rhubarb Bread Recipe

Rhubarb season will be here soon and Country Harvest Greenhouse will be selling rhubarb. Here's an excellent recipe for enjoying rhubarb:


This recipe comes from my "A Taste of Shipshewana" cookbook. I treasure my Amish cookbooks and the many fabulous recipes they contain. This sweet, dark bread became an instant hit in my house.

1-1/2 c brown sugar
2/3 c vegetable oil
1 egg
1 c sour milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
2-1/2 c flour
1-1/2c chopped rhubarb
1/2 c chopped nuts

1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp butter

Stir together in order given. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans. Crumble topping ingredients together and place topping evenly over each loaf. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until done.
