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."
