Recipe by Bergy

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.
