This coffee cake recipe is a variation of one a close friend and I make for our home baking business. I've used raspberries and blueberries in place of the rhubarb with winning results. —Lorraine Robinson, Stony Plain, Alberta

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3-1/2 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed and drained
  • TOPPING:
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
  2. Pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Spoon rhubarb to within 1/2 in. of edges. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over top.
  3. Bake at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
Editor's Note
If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
