Even people that don't think they like rhubarb love this cake. You could serve it as a coffee cake or for dessert. This recipe makes 2 loaves.

Rhubarb has a unique tartness that's wonderful in desserts. This rhubarb streusel cake is particularly delicious. The tartness complements the brown sugar and walnuts. It's a moist and tender cake with a crunchy streusel topping. A delicious treat for breakfast or a light dessert. The final product is sort of a rhubarb coffee cake. So good!

Note: If you want a lighter crust on this cake, use light color or glass loaf pans. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
