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."
