  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Place bread cubes into a buttered 2 quart casserole dish. Combine the milk and butter in a saucepan, and heat just to the boiling point. Pour over the bread cubes, and let stand for 15 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Stir in rhubarb. Pour over the soaked bread, and stir gently until evenly blended. Sprinkle walnuts over the top.
  3. Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until nicely browned on the top. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

I like to find different ways to use my pie plant instead of the "usual" crisps, cobblers and pies. And this recipe is the best I've ever found! I can't say enough for it! It's the BEST!

Very nice, used frozen rhubarb. Liked the contrast of sweet and tart. Served with cream and brown sugar sauce if anyone wanted it, very well received.

This bread pudding was the hit of the Easter parade of desserts! I made 1.5 X this recipe, baked it the same amount of time, and it was perfect. I served it with the custard sauce from Grandma's...

A good bread pudding recipe and an original way to use up rhubarb. I liked the overall taste but I found it a bit too eggy. Next time I might use more bread and less eggs.
