This amazing Apple Rhubarb Bread Recipe makes a delicious loaf of fresh apple bread with healthy rhubarb too!
If you have rhubarb in your garden or in your freezer, why not treat yourself and your family to a scrumptious loaf of apple bread with rhubarb! You will be happy you did;)
This is an apple "quick-bread" recipe, meaning there is not need to use any yeast! Just all-purpose flour.
1 1/2 cups **fresh rhubarb, chopped (about 1/2" - 1" size pieces)
1 1/2 cups apples, peeled, quartered and thinly sliced (about 2 apples)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tsps. vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped (or any type of nuts)
**You can also use frozen rhubarb for this recipe. Thaw the frozen rhubarb in a sieve over a bowl, and discard the excess liquid. I usually thaw a little more than 1 1/2 cups of frozen rhubarb to make the propper amount of rhubarb required for the recipe.
In a bowl, combine the prepared rhubarb and apples.
In a another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and nuts.
In another, large bowl, beat (with an electric hand mixer) the eggs, and beat in the sugar, oil, and vanilla.
Gently fold the egg mixture into the flour mixture, just until combined, do not overmix. Batter will be thick.
Fold in the prepared rhubarb and apples.
Pour the batter into 1 greased (I used non-stick cooking spray), medium size (approx. 9" x 5" x 3") loaf pan, or into 2 smaller size loaf pans. (I used one medium size pan.)
Bake at 350° F for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
If desired, make a shield out of aluminum foil paper (see pictures below), and add to the bread after it has baked in the oven for about 30 minutes. I like to add this shield to prevent the edges of the loaf from becoming too dark. (Similar idea as a pie crust shield).
Allow the loaf to cool for about 20 minutes on a wire rack before slicing.
Enjoy this Homemade Rhubarb Apple Bread!
