Rhubarb Bread Pudding

A sure sign of spring is fresh produce from the garden. Rhubarb is one of the first crops ready. I like to use the fruit in crisps and pies. I also use it in this Rhubarb Bread Pudding recipe. The rhubarb mixture is just tart enough so that the bread pudding is not overly sweet. If you love rhubarb use more rhubarb filling.

Enjoy!
