Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Cake

The combination of strawberry and rhubarb never gets old. It is especially delightful in this dessert - the fruity combo sits on a layer of cake and then is topped with a coconut-laced streusel. Served with vanilla ice cream, it's the PERFECT summer dessert.

Start by making the streusel. Combine the brown sugar, flour, salt and coconut.

Add in the cold butter,

then use your fingers to cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly, like this.

Set aside the streusel. For the fruit layer, combine the rhubarb and strawberries, and sprinkle with brown sugar and flour.

Stir this mixture so that the fruit is all coated. Now, for the cake layer! Cream together the butter and powdered sugar. Then add the eggs, vanilla and yogurt.

Now gradually add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Spread the batter into a greased 9-inch pan. (I'm using a foil liner here, but I really don't think that's necessary.) Then top with the fruit filling.

Now sprinkle the streusel on top of the fruit filling.

The pan will be VERY full. Doesn't this look delicious???

Bake for 50-55 minutes or until golden brown and set. Cool on a wire rack

and then refrigerate until you're ready to serve.

  1. Good Evening Sara, I love rhubarb and I love strawberries, so I think this cake will be on the menu this weekend.
    I have made an apple crumble cake before, but not one which includes yoghurt, so I am looking forward to baking this cake.
