Outstanding Rhubarb Bread Pudding

Rating: 4.73 stars
I don't like rhubarb. But oh, how I have tried to like it. I have a patch of it growing in my yard and I wanted to find a way to use it. I've tried it in cakes, pies, cobblers, crisps, etc. This recipe was rhubarb's last stand. If I didn't like this I was giving up on rhubarb for good. And oh, boy! It is amazing. I can't wait for my rhubarb patch to ripen up this spring so I can make it again.
