You knew I’d be back with a new rhubarb recipe for you, right? Following sharing my really like of rhubarb in my Rhubarb 101, I simply couldn’t leave you hanging without yet another fresh new way to use this beloved ingredient!
This Cinnamon Rhubarb Bread with Brown-Butter Glaze is moist and tender and warmly spiced with a very good quantity of cinnamon. And that wonderful brown-butter glaze is the best contrast to the tart bites of glorious spring rhubarb.
This sweet swift bread recipe comes with each other good and straightforward. And it makes two great-sized loaves, excellent for eating a single now and freezing the other for later on. Or for gifting a loaf to a pal or neighbor. Who wouldn’t enjoy to find one of these golden loaves at their front door?
You could absolutely do without incorporating the brown-butter glaze, but I can’t picture why you’d want to skip this ultimate step, this coronation of your perfectly turned-out loaves. My pictures demonstrate a far more minimal drizzle of the glaze, but I’ve also been known to spread it on, wonderful and thick. I promise you, it’s good either way.
The cinnamon rhubarb bread is sturdy, however tender, and flawlessly moist. And I adore the tiny red and green hued pockets of puckery rhubarb goodness. I slice the bread for early morning breakfasts, weekend brunches, and after school snacking—along with cups of scorching coffee or tea or tall glasses of cold milk.
With almost all quick breads and muffins, you’ll locate me reaching for the butter dish. I just can’t resist including a shmear of butter. But this cinnamon rhubarb bread is a diverse story for me, and it’s all because of the brown-butter glaze. I discover that the buttery glaze is adequate. Properly sufficient.

Fold the rest of the rhubarb into the batter and then divide batter evenly amongst the two ready pans. Poke the reserved rhubarb pieces into the leading of the bread, for a quite impact.
Bake about 60–65 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center of every single loaf comes out clean. Awesome in the pans on wire racks for ten minutes.
Loosen edges and eliminate loaves from pans. Awesome loaves entirely on wire racks.
For the brown-butter glaze:
As soon as the loaves have cooled, put together the brown-butter glaze. Very first, pour half-and-half into a tiny bowl and set aside. This is just to get the chill off, while you prepare the rest of the glaze.
Include sifted powdered sugar to a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
In a medium saucepan more than medium heat, warm butter until finally golden brown and foaming, stirring occasionally. This should get about 6–8 minutes. The butter ought to smell tasty and toasty. If it smells burnt, you went as well far.
Very carefully pour browned butter into the powdered sugar, leaving all but the darkest butter sediment behind. Add 1 tablespoon of the half-and-half, and then add the vanilla. Stir vigorously until smooth. You want the glaze to be somewhat thick, but effortlessly pourable. If it would seem too thick, add a bit far more of the half-and-half right up until you like the consistency. Drizzle the glaze in excess of the loaves whilst the glaze is still warm.
