Tasty Tuesday!!

Here it is - the OMGoodness Gracious YUMMO Recipe I made this weekend.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Coffee Cake.
3 c fresh rhubarb, cut in 1-inch pieces
2 c fresh strawberries
1 C sugar
1/3 c cornstarch
-Cook the strawberries and rhubarb for about 5 minutes.
-Combine the sweetener of your choice with the cornstarch and add to fruit. Cook until bubbly and thick (thickens really quickly once it all gets warm). 
-Set aside to cool

3 c flour
1 c sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cinnamon

1 c butter
1 c buttermilk (I always substitute with almost a cup of Sour Cream and top it off with milk)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine dry ingredients. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Beat wet ingredients together and add to flour mix, stirring just to moisten. Spread half the batter in a greased 9x13x2 inch baking pan. Spread the cooled rhubarb filling over this and spoon the remaining batter in small portions on top of the filling.

Honestly I think you could do this as muffins instead of a 'cake' and it would be really yummy and an easy brunch treat! I would also half the batter ingredients next time too just since it grew so BIG in the pan and crumbled over the sides. 

Make a topping by combining
3/4 c sugar, 1 cup flour, cut in 1/4 cup butter and then add 1/4 cup flaked coconut
Sprinkle over the coffee cake batter, bake at 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.
We ate this warm and it was oh my yummy nummy wow!  This would be really good with some fresh whipped cream or if you like Ice Cream I bet that would be good too!

This looks AMAZING!!!! I want to try it, but I'm a little afraid, as I have kind of a block where baking is concerned. I should probably just face my fears though, if the outcome could be this delicious! Thanks for sharing!
