Here is the rhubarb bread recipe that I promised to share with you. 
The one I think you will like even if rhubarb is not on your favorite list.
The bread that my friend Arlene made years ago, and I still
remember how good it tasted then.

I finely chopped the rhubarb ahead of time.

 I mixed the chopped rhubarb with 2 Tbsp. of flour.


2 3/4 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Stir the above ingredients together in a big bowl.

In another bowl, add;

1 egg
1 cup of buttermilk
1/2 cup of cooking oil
1 tea. vanilla

1 cup finely chopped rhubarb

Stir well.  Add the ingredients to the dry ingredients in the bowl above.
Fold floured chopped rhubarb into the mixture and stir.
Fill sprayed bread pans with the batter.  Dot each loaf with some butter and sprinkle
each loaf lightly with sugar( I sprinkled mine with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon).
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven, for 25-30 minutes, depending on the size of your
bread pans.  Bake until lightly brown on top and firm to the touch.  Cool in pans for
10 minutes, remove, cool and wrap.  This bread is good when frozen too.

I doubled the recipe and it made many little loaves of delicious bread.  It is best served warm,
with a cup of coffee or tea.  Enjoy!

We were blessed with an abundant rain yesterday and last night, and we are so grateful for it!
It has been so dry, and our county has many crops and gardens that need water.

Thanks for stopping by.

And we are very thankful for a little rain over here this morning as well...and hoping for more to come. It has been the driest May on record...with a hot and dry June in the forecast.

The rhubarb loaf looks yummy! Why am I not surprised that you doubled the loaf...in order to share with others? :)

I saw all those tasty looking loaves and just knew you have a plan to wrap them and give them away. We're with you on the rain.. it has been the driest May in decades and it's raining now... the farmers are happy.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I do like rhubarb, but have never had it made into a bread. It looks delicious. I like the fancy pans you used to make yours.
That rose photo with the raindrops on it is so pretty. We were blessed with some rain today too.
On a side note, my husband will be in your area on a business trip later this week. I told him it is going to be so picturesque and he is in for a treat. Although he will only be there a short while and won't get the full appreciation for your pretty area.
