Rhubarb Bread with Brown Sugar Topping

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups rhubarb (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup nuts (finely chopped)


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp hot orange juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, egg and vegetable oil. Stir in finely chopped rhubarb, vanilla and milk. In a separate bowl, sift together the baking soda, salt, and flour. Add the wet mixture to your flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. Stir in the finely chopped nuts. Pour into greased baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes clean.

To make the topping, combine the hot orange juice and brown sugar until dissolved. Pour over hot bread once it has been removed from the oven. When juice is well absorbed, remove bread from pan. Cool on a wire or wooden rack and wrap for storage.
