Reviews for Orange Rhubarb Bread
"Delicious recipe! I doubled it and made in two regular size bread pans. Next time I will x4 so my loaves are higher. It is so good! I may have a whole loaf eaten before my husband gets home from work! I sprinkled the top with sugar before baking. Next time I will sprinkle a bit more sugar and also add more orange zest."
"Dilli: Why would you try to rate something you haven't actually tried? That's cheating!"
"Only 3/4 cup flour? Is this correct. I could only give it 3 stars because I don't know if the recipe is correct."
"good but not sure I would make again."
"This is a great way to use up so much rhubarb. Everyone that has tried this bread really loves it. I cut extra rhubarb up and freeze in 1 1/2 cup bags to make this in the winter months. I also tripled the recipe to make two full large loaves. Need to adjust cooking and cooling times however."
"Have made this over and over1 It is yummy and my 3 little nephews love it! I have made this as mini loafs and many times as muffins, sprinkling sugar over the top before baking. And always use the all the zest of one orange. Try it!"
"Excellent. As someone suggested, I increased the orange peel. Am also making double batches now because it's so good."
"This recipe is absolutely delicious. Next time I make it I am going to double or triple the recipe because I have only a bread loaf size pan. I increased the grated orange to one teaspoon. Best when eaten fresh. Didn't like it after one week as it lost flavor."
"This has a great taste. However I do not like the flat apprearance of the loaf. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to get a better rounded top to the loaf.I made it as one slightly larger loaf instead of the two tiny ones."
"Awesome bread...I love it. My husband is always dieting so I substituted orange fat-free yogurt for the butter and it turned out great!"
"Made this bread today with fresh rhubarb out of my patch.....Very good.. Nice and moist and flavorful...I liked the orange zest. It's a keeper. Also, there is just the two of us so the small size is perfect."
"My family and I thought this recipe was delicious, thank you for sharing it!"
"A very good recipe. I did not have rhubarb on hand so I used golden raisins and walnuts ...but it was great!"
"Doubled the recipe; for sugar, used 1/2 white and 1/2 honey powder; grated peel of one large orange; toasted pecans; baked in two 8x4 loaf pans for 45 minutes.....turned out perfect! Very moist, and not too sweet."
"Made this with my first cutting of rhubarb, it is EXCELLENT!! Next time I will double it."
"I only made a few changes...I doubled the recipe and used half cranberries and half rhubarb...and the peel of 2 oranges. My fruit was froze when I baked it. It still turned out great. It is a keeper."
"You can sub the yogurt for the sour cream with some minor texture differences.To use honey in place of sugar, for 1 cup of sugar use 2 tablespoons less honey, add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and reduce another liquid in the recipe by 3 tablespoons.The flavor and texture will not be quite the same."
"I would like to be able to make a substitution of honey for the sugar and yogurt for the sour cream. Do you think this would work? we love the recipe as it is but this is for a friend who cannot have certain items and I'd love to gift her with some of this great bread!"
"Yummy! When I run out of Rhubarb I'm gonna try Cranberrys"
"being I have lots of rhubarb, this was a must to make, so moist and I did add more orange peel...make in mini muffins to give away some of them.."
"Make LOTS! There will be no left-overs 10 minutes after you pull this out of the oven. Also makes great 'French Toast.'"
"This is excellent!!! I added more grated orange than the recipe calls for and am so glad that I did! This is a perfect breakfast bread, it's not overly sweet or heavy feeling. I have plenty of leftover rhubarb and plan to make another couple loaves today!!"
