Reviews for Rhubarb-Buttermilk Coffee Cake
"This is a super moist cake with great flavor! Even better the next day!"
"I made this 2 times and found that I had to bake much longer then 30min, more like 45 min. I has been a hit at my house, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream really hits the spot!"
"I made the Rhubarb-Buttermilk coffee cake for a luncheon and everyone commented on how good it was. I will be making this recipe again!"
"I already made it twice--1st time it looked done but it was still very solid--not cake like. Thought it was old baking powder, so made it again on Fri.-same thing. Baked it according to directions & toothpick came out clean. Not sure I want to try it again & bake it alot longer or what. Any suggestions?"
"We loved It---great for Easter Brunch--I had no problem with it rising. Will make again~~one of my Rhubarb favorites now."
"I made this cake twice and each time it did not rise and was very heavy. It does not look anything like the picture. Is the recipe correct?"
