Big Crumb Rhubarb Coffee Cake


I made this Big Crumb Coffee Cake from a recipe I found on smittenkitchen
Check them out as they have some pretty amazing recipes.
My review would be to be sure to use butter and not substitute margarine.
My husband's review of the cake was simply "Mmmm-mm-mm-mmm-mm!"
