8 mini loaves


  • ½ cup melted butter

  • ½ cup orange juice

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 ½ cups finely chopped rhubarb

  • ½ cup chopped fresh strawberries

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease eight 2 1/2x3 1/2-inch mini loaf pans.

  2. Beat melted butter, orange juice, brown sugar, and egg together using an electric mixer in a bowl. Stir in rhubarb and strawberries.

  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and ginger in a bowl. Pour into egg mixture and stir until just incorporated and batter is stiff. Divide and spread batter evenly between the 8 prepared pans.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaves comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can use light oil instead of melted butter, or a combination of the 2 to make 1/2 cup.

You can substitute 1/2 cup blueberries for strawberries, if desired.

This can also be made into 12 muffins.
