Fudgy Cherry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Carol

This is a quick coffeecake to stir together. I have rhubarb in my garden and combining it with chocolate is a favorite of mine. The cherries and pecans give the coffeecake a chewy and crunchy addition.

This recipe was excellent. The texture of the cake was light and tasty. I did not find dried cherries, but I found canned sour cherries which I used. I had some crushed pecans and made up the balance with chopped walnuts. I did not get the chewy or crunchy part in my cake but that could be because I did not have "dried" cherries, and not enough pecans. I had a warm piece with ice cream and it was great. I did not bake the cake at 375 defF(its a little to high for a convection oven), but did it at 350 degF and baked it a little longer.
