Rhubarb Bread

I am not a great fan of rhubarb, but this bread is outstanding! I like it even better than banana bread. This is an old family recipe, lightened just a bit. I hope you like it!
I like to cut each loaf into 8 slices and then cut those slices in half so that it feels like you are getting a thick piece.

Makes 2 loaves ( 16 slices each loaf) 


  • 1-½ c. brown sugar
  • ⅓ c. unsweetened applesauce
  • ⅓ c. canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. sour milk( 1 c. skim milk with 1 T. vinegar. Let stand for a few minutes)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2-½ c. flour
  • 1-½ c. rhubarb, sliced thinly


  • ½ c. sugar
  • 1 T. softened butter

Mix ingredients in order given. Pour into 2 loaf pans coated with nonstick spray.  For topping, combine butter and sugar until crumbly.  Sprinkle with topping. Bake at 350 for 45 -60 minutes.
