Reviews for Rhubarb Strawberry Coffee Cake
"double the filling"
"Some of the instructions make no sense. Note after it asks you to spoon cooled filling over batter, then it asks you to top with fruit mixture. Isn't the filling and the fruit mixture the same thing? Confusing!This needs to be corrected."
"Amazing! No rhubarb yet but I used peaches and blueberries that I had leftover in the freezer and it was to die for! Definitely a keeper and making again with rhubarb!"
"This is very good. I did not have rhubarb so I used frozen mixed berries. This takes a little while to prepare but its worth the wait.My family loves it."
"Thia recipe is fab, and although it takes a little work and a few ingrediants-it's worth it!! Make sure you cook it long enough-otherwise it's a gooey-yet yummy middle of the cake :)"
