  1. Hi Kelly,
    We just love Rhubarb, and paired with apple for this loaf looks like a winning combination. Great recipe! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you next week! Have a very special week end!

  2. Mmmm that looks so tasty. I’ve never cooked Rhubarb! Maybe this recipe will help me get over my fear πŸ˜‰

  3. First of all, that looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it! We grew up eating rhubarb sauce (cooked with lots of sugar) as a treat at my Grandma’s so I would love to try a new way to use it.Also, I just have to chime in as a biology teacher to give a vegetable/fruit explanation, since I just was teaching this the other day! Everyone gets so confused with things like tomatoes and rhubarb, and what it comes down to is “fruit” is both a culinary AND biological term, while “vegetable” is purely culinary. In culinary terms, a vegetable is a savory type of item while fruit is sweet, in general. But biologically, a fruit is the ripened ovary of a plant, which includes not just apples & berries etc. but also peanuts, cucumbers, and even the “helicopters” from maple trees. Things we call vegetables can be fruits (like tomatoes or cucumbers), stems (like rhubarb or potatoes), roots (such as carrots) or leaves (all the lettuces).I’m not sure if anyone cares about all that, but I think it is so interesting, and it explains why it’s always confusing!

    1. Thank you Emily! I always thought the difference was whether they had seeds or not. Learning more and more everyday! Hope you come by again soon!

  4. I just made THREE batches of this. One to eat now, one to freeze and one to share at the office. This will be my new “go to” quick bread recipe for the apples and rhubarb in my backyard.

  5. I made this recipe and I love it, my only question is , I cooked it for 55 minutes and in the middle it was a little underdone , I live in a hot altitude area and was wondering if I should adjust the temperature or the length that it cooked

  6. I tried making my own Rhubarb Jam for the first time this year. It is delicious. There won’t be any wasted rhubarb in this house any more!

    1. I’m sure it could, but you may want to allow it to sit in liquid for a bit first to allow it to soften. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!

    1. It should work ok for you, Barb! Just be sure to watch water content, we would suggest maybe thawing the rhubarb before cooking with it.
