Sour Cream Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"This is an 'any time of day' cake that my mom used to make. Good warm or cold, this cake is incredibly moist inside, while the surface has a tiny bit of crisp from the sugar granules. Tangy rhubarb and sour cream are offset by the sweet cake and sugar sprinkle. It is DE-lish!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Whisk flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl. Beat butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a separate large bowl until smooth, and stir in sour cream, egg, and vanilla extract, mixing well. Stir flour mixture into sour cream mixture just until incorporated; pour batter into prepared baking dish. Spread rhubarb over batter. Mix white sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the rhubarb.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes.

Delicious! I added an extra cup of rhubarb, extra cinnamon, and baked it in a slightly smaller pan. It is super moist, and definitely a new favorite!
