Orange-Rhubarb Breakfast Bread Recipe

I love starting my day with a slice of this fabulous sweet bread alongside eggs, sausage and orange juice. It’s full of tangy flavor and crunchy slivered almonds. —Sonya Goergen, Moorhead, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 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 cup chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

Directions

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger and nutmeg; add to creamed mixture alternately with orange juice. Fold in rhubarb and almonds.
  • 3. Transfer to a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° 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).
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
