We are well into our kitchen/bathroom/laundry room remodel and not only am I missing home-cooked food, I am missing the experience of cooking and baking in general. We have returned to Naples and further traveling after a very brief "pit-stop" home, just long enough to check on things and to gather up some rhubarb from my yard to pack in my suitcase. If I can't be home for all the benefits of spring, at least I can take some with me! While this rhubarb bread recipe is a fairly standard one, I'm happy to be the first to review it and report that it does not diminish the fact that they (I baked this as muffins) delivered all I hoped they would. It is a great recipe. They are flavorful, moist, with just the right amount of rhubarb and spice and no distracting or "creative" add-ins. The topping is generous, stays put on the muffin and is delightfully crispy-crunchy. Mostly, they were the little taste of good, home baking Hubs and I have been missing. (One recipe produced 16 standard sized muffins. Bake at 350 degrees, about 25 minutes) Read More

I want to start off by saying that these were yummy and my boys (ages 6 and below) loved them. The next time around I am going to skip the topping all together and incorporate the cinnamon in with the batter and cut the sugar down a bit as well. I guess it all depends on your preference and we like to try and keep the sugar down in this house so if you're the same way try to cut down in the sugar and you should love these! Read More

The first time I followed the instructions and it was ok but I cut the rhubarb into pieces that were too small so they practically dissolved when cooked. The second time I not only increased the size of the pieces but I increased the amount to two cups. Much, much better. The third time - I rocked it by adding somewhere between 3/4 and a cup of chopped walnuts. Awesome! Read More

This is so delicious! First of all I absolutely hate rhubarb but after using this recipe I've definitely found a use for it! I made this recipe exactly as it is written but next time I'm going to add at least 1/2 cup more rhubarb. It's perfectly fine as is but I think that that extra little bit of rhubarb could make it even better. The crumble is a nice added touch though I personally find it a little too sweet that's a matter of personal preference however. Everybody loves is and even though I made it about an hour ago half of it's already gone and my family is demanding I make a second one. The only discrepancy I found in this recipe was the fact that it said to bake it for 1 hour. I had to bake mine for about an hour and 20 minutes for it to actually come together. It is still surprisingly moist considering the length of time that it baked for. Read More

I altered slightly to suit our tastes I halved the sugar and oil added 1 tsp vanilla used 1 cup each whole wheat flour ap flour and oatmeal for leavening 2 tsps baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda used 2 cups rhubarb and dusted the tops of the muffins with cinnamon sugar. Baked at 375 for 22 minutes made 15 muffins very tasty! Read More

Had some extra rhubarb and tried this out and it was delicious! I made muffins instead of bread and cut the baking time down to 20-25 minutes. I agree with others though that some more rhubarb would have been great too. Read More

I wanted to freeze some of these so I made muffins and baked them for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. This recipe makes delicious muffins/bread! The ones that came out of the freezer defrosted perfectly at room temperature and were as tasty as when they were first made. Also when I made these I ran out of white flour and had to use mostly whole wheat and it worked well for me. Read More
