Reviews for Rhubarb Coffee Cake for a Crowd
"This was very good and I will definately make it again. It made so the house smell so good while it was cooking."
"Have made it several times and it always disappears quickly. It's always better after sitting for a couple of hours or even overnight. When using frozen rhubarb I increase the rhubarb by 1/2 cup."
"Greeted at work with a clean pan within 2 hours of bringing it in. Wonderful, easy recipe!"
