Rhubarb Bread

Hot from the oven ... Rhubarb Bread

June 2017 UPDATE - having more fresh rhubarb on hand, I did a side by side test. One batch made with yogurt, the second batch with soy milk + vinegar. 

SEW how was it? They looked the same, and the taste was somewhat similar but the yogurt batch tasted MUCH better. 

NOTE - if you like your bread sweeter, add a 1/4 cup more sugar. Enjoy! RB

Fresh Rhubarb in the summertime begs to be added to Rhubarb Bread!

While we were camping on vacation recently, my sister reminded me of her favorite bread, Rhubarb Bread. I couldn't get home quick enough and start hunting around for rhubarb!

Warm, sliced and ready to eat ...

Thankfully one of my 4-H families came to my rescue and gave me a nice collection of fresh produce which included rhubarb and zucchini!

Using my sisters' tried and true recipe that I veganized, the rhubarb bread came out perfect! 




My sister, Mary's recipe - VEGANIZED! Thank you, Mary!
