Rhubarb Streusel Bread

2 c. flour

3/4 c. sugar

2 1/2 t. baking powder

2 eggs

1 t. vanilla

2 c. diced rhubarb

For the topping:

3 T. sugar

1/2 t. cinnamon

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Grease two loaf pans with cooking spray.

2.  In a large mixing bowl combine and whisk together all dry ingredients.

3.  In another bowl combine the cottage cheese, butter, eggs and vanilla.  Lightly stir this into the dry ingredients.  Do not over mix.

4.  Gently fold in the rhubarb.
