I made this today and it over flowed big time when it was baking. Should I have used two loaf pans? I thought it was for one loaf pan. It looked sad but tasted good.

Hello, Shannon! I'm so sorry to hear about the overflow and I'm not sure why that would happen. The only thing that comes to mind is that maybe your loaf pan was a bit smaller than standard size? I happy that it still tasted good, but since we all eat with our eyes first I understand that looks are important. Two loaf pans would work, of course, but this recipe was written for just one and I never have had that problem. I wish I could help come up with a better answer, but I'm at a loss. Again, sorry that happened. Take good care, Renee

Is it baking soda or baking powder,???

I’m sorry for my error. I wish I had an editor. ;) It’s baking powder. I will fix the recipe post ASAP. Thanks for alerting me to my error, Linda! Renee

I love this recipe and will make it when I return from Germany. Rhubarb adds tartness and flavor to breads like this.

Rhubarb and strawberry work so well together. I hope you enjoy this recipe!

I'm not usually a fan of rhubarb however this bread may be the thing to change my opinion of it.
