Rhubarb comes in early in Wisconsin — sometimes in early May. We enjoy it in a wide variety of baked items and then freeze as much as we can to enjoy until the next spring.


Vegetable cooking spray
2 cups nonfat milk
2 large eggs
1 ⅔ cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
7 slices dry whole-grain bread, cubed
5 cups diced rhubarb, fresh or frozen (thawed) 


  1. Preheat oven to 350 ºF.
  2. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with the cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Beat well. Stir in the bread and rhubarb. Pour into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake, uncovered, for 60 to 75 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Using a spatula, press down on the bread a few times during the baking process.

Cooking Tip


Substitute ½ cup liquid egg substitute for the 2 large eggs. To reduce the calories, substitute ⅔ cup spoonable sugar replacement ⅔ cup of regular sugar (retain the remaining 1 cup regular sugar).
