Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x4-inch loaf pan.

  • Mix flour, baking soda, ginger, and salt together in a medium bowl.

  • Whisk brown sugar and egg together in a large bowl; add buttermilk, oil, and vanilla extract. Gently stir in dry ingredients. Add rhubarb, strawberries, and almonds and mix until just combined. Scrape batter into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 70 to 75 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I added the ground almonds to add to the texture of the loaf as well as a little more nutrition.

You can use melted butter instead of vegetable oil.

Use frozen rhubarb and strawberries, thawed, instead of fresh if desired.
