Apple Rhubarb Loaf

Apple Rhubarb Loaf is the perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of tea (or coffee, but my favourite is tea). It is slightly sweet and earthy to give it that comfort food flavour.

So yesterday Amanda’s Daily Dish hit 100 likes on Facebook…yay! I am so excited that so many of you have liked my page enough to follow along with me on Facebook. I’ve got so many recipes and ideas that I want to share. Even my little guys are starting to get into it and are making suggestions as to what I should include on the blog. Such helpful little guys they are.

Jeff (my husband) was also a help when he came home from work the other day with a big bag of rhubarb. A client of his had given it to him and I was so excited because when we lived in our first home we had a big rhubarb patch and I would bake tons of goodies with rhubarb. I never replanted one once we moved and I’ve really missed it since then. 

I also had a big bag of apples on hand so that’s how this recipe was created. Apples and rhubarb sounded like it would be a nice match so away we went. The result was a delicious loaf full of fruit (is rhubarb even a fruit? I think maybe it would be a plant? I never thought of that before).

I’m enjoying a piece with my cup of tea while I finish this post up. It is so yummy. Here’s the recipe…

I used sour cream in this recipe for the moisture. It gave the loaf a nice flavour and texture.

Look at those chubby little fingers. Chandon (my 3 year old little guy) really wanted to help.
