It’s that time of year to start finding ways to make use of all that tart but savory rhubarb.
I was given my rhubarb plants by a dear friend, probably 8 or 9 years ago, and have since divided my plants and given pieces of them to a few friends too. It’s the plant that just keeps on giving, even it you just get too much and give away a few stalks here and there. Most people won’t complain unless you leave it on their doorstep and run. I’ve heard of that happening with zucchini.
Paying forward kindness in the form of a rhubarb coffee cake won’t be turned away I’m positive. Wouldn’t you love to be given a nice home-baked sweet treat.
In the mail today came a card from a lady who we had encountered few weeks back that got stuck in our town due to a big nasty storm, we helped her out with getting her cell phone charged so she could contact family and gave her a place to sit and have shelter from the storm for a few hours until she could make plans. Just little things, but she was so thankful for those little things she sent a card thanking us for the acts of kindness and said in the card “I will pay it forward”. I thought that was great, and am sure she will.
So maybe today is your day to pay forward an act of kindness and grace someone with this rhubarb coffee cake.
Adapted from the nourishing gourmet.

Enjoy this wonderful little coffee cake for breakfast or dessert. I used rhubarb but you could do the same thing with strawberries or a combination of the two.
