Rhubarb Bread

I have been enjoying all the rhubarb my friends and neighbors have been giving me. Most of the time I make rhubarb old recipe handed down on my hubby's side of the family. You can find that awesome recipe here.

But I thought I'd branch out and try a few new ones this summer. I was reading a few over at all recipes and this bread sounded pretty good. There were lots of good reviews. BUT one thing about the reviews over there that bugs me is....the people giving them change the recipe so much! I want a review on the original recipe I am reading, not one they made up. Oh well. Just sayin.

At first, this bread was good, but not great. By that I mean it didn't taste as flavorful and moist until the day AFTER baking. Brent loved it and was actually hoarding it...I found a couple pieces hidden in my appliance garage! haha. He should know better...I can find ANYTHING when it comes to food.

But I left it alone...even if it was the last two slices!

I like to try different rhubarb recipes too, I made muffins last week, they were ok but nothing compares to the tried and true rhubarb crisp!

Your loaf does look very tasty though!

We are new to using Rhubarb! Should you cook it first? We made a dessert with strawberries and rhubarb, just chopped and no one could eat it, it was very chewy. Or does the baking in the oven soften it enough? Thanks!

Your notes crack me up. Brent trying to hide the left overs. Possibly he wanted them for his lunch at work?

Yes, Holly it needs to be cooked, with plenty of sugar as it's so tart.

If you follow rhubarb recipes you should be fine!
