Rhubarb Streusel Coffee Cake


It's time to start pulling up the rhubarb and if you're all fed up with Rhubarb Crumble why not try a Rhubarb Streusel Coffee Cake? It's name is a little misleading as it doesn't have any coffee in it - it's just made to be perfect with a nice afternoon coffee in the late Spring sunshine.
