Linda has kindly provided us with a recipe from Bruce's aunt, Elaine Yost. Who is Bruce? Oh, I think you should ask Linda.... :P
Rhubarb Coffee Cake
– from Elaine Yost
4 cups rhubarb chopped
2 eggs beaten
2 cups sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup walnuts broken into quarters or smaller
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp soda
3 T brown sugar
1.5 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 x 13 cake pan.
Mix flour, salt, soda in a medium bowl.
Mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, stirring as ingredients are added. Add dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
Pour batter into pan. Sprinkle topping over the batter.
Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes.
This is a very moist coffee cake, but the flavor was really good. I would have added ¼ tsp of nutmeg. [Editor's note: Linda always thinks recipes are better with a little nutmeg!]
