Love It or Hate It

Rhubarb! You can't help but Love this, honest. Rhubarb Struesel Bread.
It's moist and just the right "tang" to the rhubarb.

My sister Maggie hates rhubarb. She loves this bread.

1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2-2 cups rhubarb

In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, oil and egg. Combine flour, salt and baking soda, stir into sugar mixture alternately with the milk mixture just until combined. Fold in rhubarb. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients. Sprinkle over the unbaked loaves.
Bake in a preheated oven for 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.


  1. Do you have any more Rhubarb to share? I love Rhubarb . . . and no doubt the bread too!

  2. I adore rhubarb with lots of yummy sugar!

    The recipe sounds great
    but I don't know what all purpose flour is
    we have cream flour or self raising flour here
    so will have to find out as I would love to try this out.

    Have a good weekend Barb
