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

This was OK. I'd like it better if it was like a rhubarb crisp, the cubed bread was too much like croutons. Also I really like rhubarb pie. Thanks CATKID it was a good experiment.

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 :-)

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!!!

Quick and yummy dessert. And the best part.......you don't have to heat the oven to make it. You cook it in the microwave. The only change I made was I didn't have cinnamon swirl bread, but I had cranberry swirl so I used it. I cooked mine for the 12 minutes and let it set for about 10 minutes before serving with ice cream. I will be making this often and love the fact of how quickly it comes together from start to finish. Thanks Catkid for a great recipe.

I made this recipe when my husband and I were camping. It was delicious just as written. I cooked it in my convention oven and served it warm with cool whip. Definately a keeper!

Very tasty!! I made a few changes, I only had plain bread so like other reviewers I added extra cinnamon to the mix. I also added 10 frozen strawberries. Then the second layer of bread covered with a tablespoon of sugar, cinnamon and butter. Then I baked it covered in foil for about 30 minutes at 350. I served with vanilla flavored cream. It was delicious!
