Strawberry Rhubarb Loaf Recipe

One thing I LOVE about the arrival of spring & summer is the harvest season for fresh fruits & veggies. Rhubarb is always one of the first to be ready to be picked, but up until this year the rhubarb in our back yard had gone to waste.  I never knew what to do with it, so we would just let the plant to go seed.
I was determined to actually make something out of our bountiful rhubarb harvest this year, and decided to try to make a Rhubarb Loaf – perfect for breakfast or to take to work as a snack.  This moist quick-bread will have you wanting more all day long!
This recipe was adapted from here in order to maximize the use of the fruits I had on hand.  Feel free to experiment and substitute different combinations.  For example, don’t have strawberries, why not try raspberries instead.
