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.

It can out very moist. Made as per recipe, I chopped the rhubarb in my food processor, next time I will chop by hand to get slightly bigger pieces and add some cinnamon. I must agree the topping is the best part. I baked it for an hour, and I maybe should have left it in a little longer but it was really good. Thanks for posting this fabulous and different bread recipe.

I loved this bread! I am always a little nervous trying out bread recipes that aren't designed for high-altitude because sometimes they turn out really dry (I live in Colorado), but this one was perfect, and I didn't change any of the amounts. The tartness of the rhubarb is balanced perfectly by the sweetness of the bread. Thanks for posting!

This was such a refreshing change, as far as sweet breads go! I had some frozen rhubarb from earlier this summer that I used. I didn't use the sugar and butter on top, but dusted the loaves with a bit of confectioner's sugar while still warm. YUMMY.

Had lots of cake recipes, but this is great- 2 loaves means one for me and one to give. Simple ingredients, too. Thanks for posting!

Good recipe! The bread is moist but has a little tartness. Other recipes tend to downplay the rhubarb, where this one gives you a slight tang. I baked 6 loaves in small pans and the cooking time was closer to 60 min. I gave a few away and froze the rest in individual freezer bags for this winter.

Love this bread! Moist, and sweet yet tangy. I used buttermilk and the pecans. Thanx for posting this one.

YUM!!! This stuff is terrific! A very comforting taste---sweet and warm with the tang of rhubarb. I did not add nuts, as I didn't have any, and I made my own sour milk with white vinegar and milk (use about 1/2 tbsp of vinegar for one cup of milk). Thanks for posting, Bergy! :-)
