Week Nineteen Guest Recipe from Linda: Rhubarb Coffee Cake

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!]


  1. Well, I made this tonight avec nutmeg! Wagner Household approved!

  2. I think I'm going to try this out this week. My neighbor's rhubarb is going crazy, so I'll help her out by using up some of it.
