Rhubarb Berry Coffee Cake Recipe

Rhubarb Berry Coffee Cake Recipe

I rely on a cake mix to speed the prep for this moist streusel-topped dessert that pairs tart rhubarb with sweet strawberries. It's great all by itself, but feel free to add some frosting or ice cream. —Jackie Heyer, Cushing, Iowa
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:12-15 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size), divided
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • Cream cheese frosting or vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup cake mix and sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Add walnuts; set aside.
  • 2. In another bowl, combine the sour cream, eggs, flour and remaining cake mix; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Fold in rhubarb and strawberries. Spread into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 4. If desired, drizzle with frosting or serve with ice cream. Yield: 12-15 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

"Delicious and relatively easy to make. I agree with the submitter that although the frosting would be a pretty finishing touch, it is not necessary and would make an already very sweet cake too sweet."

"This is wonderful! I only had a lemon cake mix, so I used that and it was delicious. My husband wouldn't even let me get the frosting on it before eating several helpings!"
