A moist, not too sweet quick bread that freezes well. An excellent way to use up the abundance of fruit from the garden. Also excellent with blackberries, blueberries, or apples.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup powdered buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups diced rhubarb, or more to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line two 9x5-inch loaf pans with parchment paper.
  2. 2 Mix together 1 tablespoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon white sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. 3 Mix together flour, powdered buttermilk, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, cloves, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  4. 4 Combine 3/4 cup white sugar, brown sugar, vegetable oil, and egg in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Add flour mixture in 3 to 4 batches, alternating with the water, beating batter briefly after each addition. With the last addition of flour, add rhubarb; stir only until flour is mixed in.
  5. 5 Divide batter evenly between prepared loaf pans. Sprinkle liberally with reserved cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  6. 6 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool on racks.

Chef's Notes

Fruit juice can be substituted for water.


  1. This was a good recipe. Only changes made included more rhubarb and adding a streusel topping instead of just cinnamon and sugar on top. I liked making one for the freezer or to give away.
