Author Notes: This recipe has been in my family a long time. It comes from my Great-Grandmother Mildred Lohmann who had a gigantic rhubarb plant in her backyard. The tangy rhubarb perfectly offsets an otherwise fluffy and sweet coffeecake batter that is then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.Gibson2011
