Ingredients

Bread

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 6 tbl unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice and zest
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup rhubarb sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup strawberries sliced

Streusel Topping

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar light or dark
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbl cold butter diced

Lemon Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp milk

Instructions

Bread

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 5 loaf pan. You can also line it with parchment paper as I often do and then spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Combine the dry bread ingredients (flour through salt) together in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • In a medium-size bowl, combine eggs, lemon juice, buttermilk and melted butter.
  • Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Fold in rhubarb and strawberries.  Pour into prepared pan.

Streusel Topping

  • Combine flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in cold butter using two forks until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over bread.
  • Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Turn pan halfway through baking. Cool completely in the pan on a wire cooling rack.
  • Remove bread from pan. Combine glaze ingredients. Add additional milk if the glaze is too thick to drizzle over bread.
