My kind neighbor Shirley left me some rhubarb and this recipe, nice thought! I made the loaf and it is very good. She said she got the recipe many years ago from some gourmet magazine. It has a nice texture

I liked this bread a lot and it smelled so good baking.I added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter and used applesauce for half the oil.I used two cups of frozen rhubarb and omitted the nuts.For the topping I used brown sugar instead of white and I added about a half teaspoon of cinnamon to that as well.This bread turned out really moist and I especially loved the topping.Next time I may even sprinkle some in the middle of the bread as well as on the top.

Delicious! I liked the first batch so much I made two more-and on a 90 degree day! That's how much I liked it. I did use a pan for little loaves for two batches, and loaf pans for the other batch. I had to decrease the baking time for the little loaves by approx. 10 minutes.

Yummy! Moist with just the right mix of tang and sweet. I wondered if I should have added cinnamon but after baking I thought it was fine without it. I did bake for 55 minutes.
