Grandma Moyer's Rhubarb and Strawberry Coffee Cake

Grandma Moyer's Rhubarb and Strawberry Coffee Cake

"This was my Grandma Moyer's recipe. It has been missing since at least the mid 80's. I found it stuck the middle of an old book I got after my mom passed away. Everyone in the family has been trying to recreate this delicious coffee cake for years. It is moist and very flavorful. I added the strawberries because I like it a little sweeter. Rhubarb is an ingredient that you don't see used very often any more, but those of us who do use it always love to find new ways to spread the love."

I often make strawberry rhubarb pie and wanted to try something new. Dolloped with cream cheese frosting, sliced strawberries and pecans. Everyone at the party loved it. Thank you for sharin...

Everybody loved it!

I thought this would be much tangier than it is. If I make it again, I will replace the strawberries with more rhubarb - and, I will lessen the sugar. Otherwise, a VERY moist cake. A dollop or t...

This was a little gooey-er than I was expecting, but still delicious. I only had 2 cups of rhubarb left in my garden, so I added a cup of chopped apples. I'm sure cherries or peaches would also ...

I was skeptical at first because the recipe didn't call for any butter or oil, but it really didn't need any! After reading other reviews, I added 1 T. of lemon juice to the fruit before folding...

I lost my recipe for rhubarb cake. This one is very close & I love the addition of strawberries.

I made this exactly as called for, it is perfect. The whole family loved it! Thank you!

Thank you Grandma Moyer!!! This is the best coffee cake our family has ever eaten! Due to the moisture content of the strawberries, I roasted them on a cookie sheet in the oven at 350 degrees fo...

this is really good cake. But I have found that the strawberries can be replaced with other fruits too and still is really nice addition to flavor. try cherry's pie filling or raspberries yum yu...
