Old Fashioned Rhubarb Coffee Cake

This Rhubarb Coffee Cake is a basic cake that was made in the old days. I used my own homegrown rhubarb, that I had in the freezer, to make this one. There are not a lot of ingredients in this coffee cake and it is not real sweet. Once the cake is cool, cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit overnight. It has delicious tart rhubarb pieces and a sugar topping that you can serve room temperature as is or warm it up and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for even more sweetness.

    • How exciting!!!! I pick mine, rise it off, slice it in about 1/2” pieces and freeze 2 cups each in freezer bags. That is the amount most recipes call for. It keeps all year long and I can make it whenever I want that way.
