Rhubarb Berry Coffee Cake

Recipe by Crafty Lady 13

You start with a cake mix to stir up this moist streusel-topped dessert that pairs tart rhubarb with sweet strawberries. A cream cheese frosting drizzled over the cake tops off this yummy dessert. From the May/June 2003 Taste of Home's Quick Cooking magazine.

We loved this recipe Crafty. What a wonderful coffee cake, moist, tender, light and full of flavor. I used sweet Ontario strawberries and tart rhubarb from my garden. This was excellent. The cake was delicious, great flavor and a perfect crumb. Thanks for sharing a new family favorite.
