Delicious! I even messed up and put in half granulated sugar before I read the instructions properly and saw 'brown'. Oops. Never mind, it was still great. I also added a nice tart apple to the mix in substitution for some of the rhubarb as I had a leftover one to use. Really tasty.

This is the BEST rhubarb coffee cake I have ever had. It's moist, full of flavour and easy to make. I didn't have enough sour cream so I used yogurt and it didn't change the texture or taste at all. My only suggestion is that when you are making one, make two as one doesn't last long enough
