Rhubarb Bread

On an extra warm day I decided it would be a good idea to turn on the oven to bake some bread. This is from the family cookbook. I did have some rhubarb to harvest and thought this would be a good use for it.

The sugar has been cut down and I replaced ¼ cup of the flour with coconut flour just for fun. Doesn’t taste half bad. I also wanted to take the idea from making cheesecake and placed the 4 loaf pans on a cookie sheet with water on it. Kept the bread very moist, actually more of a sticky moist…so might not have been the best idea ever, but hey that’s what experimenting is, right?
