Rhubarb Apple Bread

This yummy bread was a quick snack to throw together for the daycare kids and used ingredients that I had on hand in my fridge and freezer... Left off the cinnamon sugar mixture for the top this time, but I think that would add the touch that it needed! :)

Rhubarb Apple Bread
(recipe found at

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped rhubarb (fresh or frozen)
1 cup peeled and chopped apples (about 1 medium apple)
1 tablespoon sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon for topping

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixture, mix the eggs on medium speed using a paddle attachment until well whisked, about 30 seconds. Add oil, applesauce and vanilla and mix on medium speed until combined. Add sugars and beat until smooth.

Add in the flour mixture in two additions, mixing on low speed between each addition. Gently fold in rhubarb and apples and pour into a lightly greased 8x4" loaf pan. Top batter with cinnamon/sugar topping. Bake for about 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool 10 minutes in loaf pan and then remove and finish cooling on a wire rack.
