For the Coffee Cake

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups rhubarb finely diced

For the Crumb Topping

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan and set aside.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the Greek yogurt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Gently stir the flour into the wet ingredients, just until combined. Mix in 2/3 of the diced rhubarb.
  • To make the crumb topping, stir together the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender.
  • Spread half of the batter in the greased 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle with half of the crumb mixture and the remaining rhubarb. Top with the other half of the batter and sprinkle on the second half of the crumb topping.
  • Bake at 350 F for 30-32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the batter just barely comes clean. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
