Mini Rhubarb Crumb Loaves #SpringSweetsWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

These little loaves are the perfect addition to your spring tea table! Just the right amount of sweetness, balanced by the tartness of the rhubarb. The bread is soft and spongy, and the crumbs add a great burst of texture and sweetness.

The little loaves are perfectly portioned for an afternoon tea – or to share with friends!

Ingredients

For the rhubarb loaves:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 /2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup chopped rhubarb

For the crumb topping:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt

Rhubarb is an ingredient that can be a little tricky to find depending on your area – I hadn’t ever had it until we got it in our CSA box a few years ago! Melissa’s Produce is a great source for tricky-to-find things like rhubarb – they supplied these beautiful stalks!

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 325.
  • Combine the brown sugar, vegetable oil, egg, and buttermilk in a large bow.
  • Stir in the salt, baking soda, vanilla, and flour until the flour is just combined.
  • Fold in the rhubarb.
  • Divide the batter between pans.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the ingredients for the crumb topping. Using your hands, break the mixture into crumbles and sprinkle it over the bread batter. Pat down slightly.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a knife inserted comes out clean.

The pan I used for these is from #SpringSweetsWeek sponsor Circulon, and it’s just perfect for individual sized desserts! I love this size pan because it makes it so easy to share with friends and neighbors. It requires no greasing and nothing stuck to this pan which made it a dream to work with. I can’t wait to try making mini ice cream cakes in it this summer!
