Lilac and a strawberry rhubarb pecan loaf...
Strawberry Rhubarb Pecan Loaf from Smitten Kitchen
Makes one loaf
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon rum
1 cup flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup diced rhubarb
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 to 3 1/2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Beat together the brown sugar, vegetable oil, egg, vanilla and rum.
Combine the flours, salt and baking soda; stir. Add dry ingredients to
first mixture with the sour cream. Stir in strawberries, rhubarb and
Spread into a greased 9×5-inch loaf pan — the batter will be very
thick. Combine topping ingredients except the pecans, they should be
thick and clumpy; add the pecans last and sprinkle over the loaf.
Bake at 350° for about 55 to 65 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean.
