I made this with frozen rhubarb and fresh strawberries. Absolutely delightful. What a great coffee cake. I brought one to work and will be giving another to my dance class and I am keeping one for home. Thank you!!!!

Delightful! I haven't made a cake from scratch in years and this was easy. I might try turning this into cupcakes/muffins next time. Couldn't help but put cool whip on it too! Thank you!
