Year of Favorites: Rhubarb Coffee Cake

A Year of Favorites: Rhubarb Coffee Cake | The Naptime Chef

I’ve been revisiting a bunch of favorites this year and I couldn’t resist pointing out this one again. (And this time the picture is better!) The recipe is exactly the same so I am not going to reprint it, but I am going to sing its praises once more. EVERYONE should make this at least once this summer. I, alas, am not making it with rhubarb from my own garden just yet. However, there is hope since the rhubarb root I planted two years ago have finally started blooming which means I’ll have rhubarb of my own to harvest soon enough!

This delicious coffee cake is as simple as they come. It is thick and creamy from the sour cream and the rhubarb gives it such a delicious tangy. We scarfed it down last weekend when my in-law’s were visiting. Even the kids liked it!

Here are a few more summer cakes you might enjoy, but this one is really the one to start with!

Recipe: Big Crumb Rhubarb Coffee Cake

If you need a few more ideas:

Rhubarb Almond Cake: One of my all-time favorites, this super simple cake can be made quickly with one bowl. Whip it up for breakfast the second you wake up and everyone will be enjoying a warm slice in under an hour!

Lemon Coconut Loaf: This loaf easily doubles as a coffee cake or dessert. It is bright and lemony with a tropical coconut note. Serve it with some stewed berries in the morning, or whipped cream at night!

Orange Cinnamon Coffee Cake: This luxurious cake features a dense crumb and lovely orange cinnamon flavor. It is perfect for munching with your morning coffee!
