  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans. In a small bowl, stir together milk, lemon juice and vanilla; let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, oil and egg. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda, stir into sugar mixture alternately with the milk mixture just until combined. Fold in rhubarb and nuts. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
  3. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. Sprinkle this mixture over the unbaked loaves.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean.

Not the prettiest bread I ever made, but it sure does taste good! The topping sort of sinks into the bread making it look like it has little craters, or kind of a pebbly looking top. And it sl...

I doubled the topping, skipped the walnuts and added an extra 1/2 cup of Rhubarb, was so amazing! This is going to my favorites folder:)

This was great bread. I love rhubarb, and we have a plant in the backyard. I was bored this evening, so I decided to harvest it, and make this bread. It turned out really moist, and really tasty...

This is delicious. I've made it twice and it freezes well. My family loved it and that's not true of all rhubarb recipes.
