Jim & I love rhubarb. This recipe is from 'my go to book' when I cook with rhubarb, "The Joy of Rhubarb".
I love this coffee cake, because it is different that a lot of the traditional rhubarb coffee cake recipes.
This is a 'keeper' recipe!

How to Make STRAWBERRY & RHUBARB COFFEE CAKE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13X9 baking pan.
  • 2To make filling cover and cook rhubarb, strawberries and lemon juice in a large sauce pan. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring so is does not burn.
  • 3Combine sugar and cornstarch. Stir into berries and bring to a boil. Stir constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • 4In a large mixing bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter until course crumbs form like pie crust.
    NOTE:
    (I use my food processor. I pulse it a few times until it resembles pie crust.)
  • 5In a separate bowl beat buttermilk, eggs and vamilla until light in color. Stir into crumb mixture. DO NOT OVER MIX. Stir to combine wet and dry ingredients.
  • 6Spread half the batter into prepared pan. Spoon filling on top, spread evenly (be gentle). Spoon remaining batter over the filling.
  • 7Combine butter, flour and sugar for topping. You want a crumb mixture. Sprinkle this on top of the coffee cake.
  • 8Bake 40-50 minutes. Be careful not to undercook. I bake mine 50 minutes.
    Cool, cut, serve and refrigerate if you have left overs.
