Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Breakfast, Unfussy

This is the perfect thing to do when you can get your hands on the first tender rhubarb of the Spring. This is my mom’s recipe.

  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups sliced rhubarb

Topping:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon

Grease 9×13″ pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream brown sugar and butter until light. Add egg. Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Add to sugar, alternating with the buttermilk. Mix in rhubarb.

Spread into a prepared pan. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon for topping, sprinkle on top. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until the center is done.
