I made this into two types: one with the walnuts and one without, so the kids could take it in their lunches. However, without the walnuts, the taste of the honey overpowered the tang of the rhubarb. If I make this again, I will cut the honey back to a maximum of half a cup.
Delicious! Loved the orange flavor paired with the tart rhubarb in this bread. I cut the honey to ½ cup (we prefer things less sweet) and used olive oil in place of melted butter. I also sprinkled turbinado sugar on top which combined with the nuts in the batter to make a crumb topping on its own! This makes two half-height loaves (or you could put all your batter in one pan and bake longer for a standard-sized loaf). Great recipe, thanks! [Made for Bargain Basement Tag]
