This recipe was just ok. I used a lemon cake mix which I wish I had not. I like lemon but didn't realize how much it would overpower the fruit. The crumble mixture on top was did not really go with the cake, especially if you try the lemon flavor. I won't make this again. I will save my rhubarb for pie.

Last reviewer - 2 cups all purpose flour, 1-1/2 cups sugar, 1 tbsp baking powder, 1/2 cup powdered milk. This recipe sounds really good and I have lots of rhubarb, so i'll be trying this.

Excellent coffee cake. I added some cinnamon to the topping, yummy.

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!
