I remember my grandmother eating that bunch of "weeds" that grew by the garage. I hated the flavor back then...too sour. Her rhubarb pie went begging as far as I was concerned. However, my tastes have changed over the years and I actually enjoy rhubarb sweets and especially if combined with strawberries! THis coffee cake recipe isn't as dry as most coffee cakes because of the added fruit. It has a nice flavor. If you really don't like rhubarb , blueberries, raspberries, etc. will also work. But, come on...be adventurous! Grandma would be proud of me. Oh, that she were still around to share a piece with me...
