Over a Cup of Coffee: Rhubarb Coffee Cake

It’s rhubarb season, and there’s nothing more delicious than rhubarb coffee cake with a cup of coffee in the morning. This week’s column features a recipe from my files. Also in the column, as promised, is Mary Burnett’s recipe for “Gluten-Free Crustless Coconut  Pie.” Thanks, Mary!

Rhubarb Coffee Cake

  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup margarine, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 1 ½ cups rhubarb, fresh or frozen, chopped
  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup regular oats, uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon margarine, softened
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 12x8x2-inch baking pan. Cream together the brown sugar, margarine, and egg. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with yogurt. Stir in the rhubarb. Pour into the baking pan. Mix brown sugar, oats, margarine, and cinnamon until crumbly; sprinkle over the batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Enjoy with a cup of coffee.   

Gluten-Free Crustless Coconut Pie

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup gluten-free flour
  • ¼ cup margarine
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flaked coconut

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a ten-inch pie plate with cooking oil spray. Combine all ingredients with a wire whisk or in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a pie plate. Bake 1 hour or less until a knife, when inserted near the center, comes out clean. Serves 10. This recipe is quick and easy. It makes its own crust. Courtesy of Mary Burnett of Craig
