It is wonderfully moist, flavorful and a great way to use Rhubarb, I may just have to grow some myself next year! I highly recommend giving this a try!
Of course since I am a diddler, fiddler and can't leave well enough alone, I had to change it by increasing the amount of ginger and nutmeg and I added some Orange Juice Powder I got from King Arthur Flour to increase the Orange quotient. Finally I made a quick little orange glaze for the top!
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup orange juice
1-1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
1/2 cup coarsely chopped toasted walnuts (I omitted the Walnuts)
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
2) In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in orange peel and vanilla.
3) Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger and nutmeg; add to creamed mixture alternately with orange juice. Fold in rhubarb and nuts.
4) Transfer batter to prepared loaf pan. Bake for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
Equal parts orange juice and powdered sugar, mix till smooth and well incorporated, drizzle over the bread! YUM
You might be a fiddler diddler, but you made some interesting changes. Orange powder? From King Arthur? I'll have to check that out, as I'm addicted to that website. One cannot go wrong with any of mary's recipes.
Orange juice powder sounds like something I need to investigate! Looks like a wonderful bread.
what a wonderful loaf of bread, i just love the flavors!
I've never tried rhubarb!
i need to get me some rhubarb!!
I think your changes make it perfect... love the orange glaze on top.
Orange is citrus and rhubarb is tart...I love the sound of this combination! It must really cut down the sweetness...it sounds lovely and looks so pretty!
Yippy...no walnuts! The bread looks wonderful, I bet it has great flavor.
hello, glaze. lookin' good. :)
terrific and unique batch of bread, cheryl--it appeals to me very much!
Beautifully made! Must be so delicious.
