Great simple recipe for summer rhubarb. I followed the other reviewer's advice and used whole wheat bread with cinnamon added. I baked covered in the oven at 350 until rhubarb was soft. 30 minutes or so. I served with a scoop of strawberry yogurt on top. My husband and two boys loved it and requested again. I believe that all recipes can be adapted, good luck Read More

This was OK. I'd like it better if it was like a rhubarb crisp the cubed bread was too much like croutons. Also I really like rhubarb pie. Thanks CATKID it was a good experiment. Read More

Just had this for the second time - we love it. Didn't have the cinnamon swerl bread this time so used ordinary bread added rounded tsp of cinnimon used raw sugar instead of white in the bottom layer and on the top layer of bread sprinked more cinnamon and raw sugar over after sprinkling on the melted butter - just as nice as the original which we adored:-) Read More

So easy to prepare - great dessert to have my 2 and 5 yr old help with. I just did all the pre-cutting and they were able to assemble with some help. I used 6 cups of rhubarb and 6 slices of thick texas toast bread. I increased the cinnamon to 1 tbs and also sprinkled 1 tbs of sugar and 1tsp of cinnamon on top before cooking. Mine took 15 min in microwave...but it was DELISH!!! Read More

Quick and yummy dessert. And the best part.......you don't have to heat the oven to make it. You cook it in the microwave. The only change I made was I didn't have cinnamon swirl bread but I had cranberry swirl so I used it. I cooked mine for the 12 minutes and let it set for about 10 minutes before serving with ice cream. I will be making this often and love the fact of how quickly it comes together from start to finish. Thanks Catkid for a great recipe. Read More

Very tasty!! I made a few changes I only had plain bread so like other reviewers I added extra cinnamon to the mix. I also added 10 frozen strawberries. Then the second layer of bread covered with a tablespoon of sugar cinnamon and butter. Then I baked it covered in foil for about 30 minutes at 350. I served with vanilla flavored cream. It was delicious! Read More

This is a great recipe but the reason for only 4 stars is that this recipe needs a slight tweak. I feel like I am somewhat of an 'expert' when it comes to this recipe as my grandmother taught me how to make it probably 30 years ago and she taught me the secret to this recipe!! I am sharing it with you all now... Actually a couple tweaks. First I put the bread on a cookie sheet and toast them in the oven on broil until golden brown on both sides. Then I cut them into cubes and put them in a bowl. Then melt at least one stick of butter maybe more depending on how many bread cubes you have and pore the melted butter over the bread cubes. You want them coated but not to the point of being soggy with butter. Also I sprinkle just a light dusting of sugar on them and gently stir. After placing everything in the pan for cooking I still drizzle a little more butter over the top. All this will help the bread cubes to taste less like 'croutons ' and more like crunchy buttery goodness on the top of your rhubarb. Also I do cover it with foil for about 1/2 hour and then remove the foil for the rest of the time so the top can finish browning. Enjoy! Read More

This was easy but I felt like it could have tasted better. I think there should have been more bread to rhubarb in this recipe. I also felt like rhubarb mixture could have been sweeter. Next time I will probably reduce the amount of rhubarb by a cup to see how that turns out. This was baked at 350 for 40 minutes covered. Read More
