We took the original Amish Friendship Bread recipe and added a rhubarb twist by omitting the cinnamon, adding 1½ cups of fresh chopped rhubarb and ½ cup chopped walnuts. We topped it off (literally!) with 2 tablespoons of coarse turbinado sugar (we like Bob’s Red Mill Coarse Turbinado Sugar). Yep, it’s as simple as that!
If you like a little strawberry with your rhubarb, add ½ cup fresh strawberries, halved.
Fresh rhubarb can usually be found year-round in most grocery stores. If you don’t see it, just ask your local produce manager.
Give a loaf or muffins to a friend, along with the starter! We have a ton of printables (free!) to help you gift your Amish Friendship Bread in style.
