    Great simple recipe for summer rhubarb. I followed the other reviewer's advice and used whole wheat bread with cinnamon added. I baked covered in the oven at 350 until rhubarb was soft. 30 minutes or so. I served with a scoop of strawberry yogurt on top. My husband and two boys loved it and requested again. I believe that all recipes can be adapted, good luck  -  21 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Just had this for the second time - we love it. Didn't have the cinnamon swerl bread this time so used ordinary bread, added rounded tsp of cinnimon, used raw sugar instead of white in the bottom layer and on the top layer of bread sprinked more cinnamon and raw sugar over after sprinkling on the melted butter - just as nice as the original which we adored :-)  -  05 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    So easy to prepare - great dessert to have my 2 and 5 yr old help with. I just did all the pre-cutting and they were able to assemble with some help. I used 6 cups of rhubarb and 6 slices of thick texas toast bread. I increased the cinnamon to 1 tbs and also sprinkled 1 tbs of sugar and 1tsp of cinnamon on top before cooking. Mine took 15 min in microwave...but it was DELISH!!!  -  29 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
