The first step to making Rhubarb Streusel Coffee Cake was to dice up some rhubarb.

The diced rhubarb.

I then set the rhubarb aside to make the streusel topping that I would also be adding into the cake batter.

For the streusel topping I dumped some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend, brown sugar, ground cinnamon and some salt into a bowl.

I blended these ingredients together with a fork before adding in some melted margarine.

Then I stirred the melted margarine in with a fork until the topping was crumbly.

Then I set aside the topping mixture to begin making the cake batter.

I dumped some granulated sugar and some margarine into a large mixing bowl.

Next I used an electric hand mixer to beat the sugar and margarine together until creamy.

Then I added in two large eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.

I continued beating with the electric hand mixer until the batter was light and fluffy.

After the batter was light and fluffy I measured in some apple sauce, vanilla extract and about half of the streusel topping I had set aside earlier.

Then I stirred these ingredients into the batter with a large wooden spoon until combined.

Next I measured in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

I stirred with the wooden spoon again until everything was well combined.

Then I folded in the diced rhubarb I had set aside earlier.

After the rhubarb was incorporated I sprayed an 8″ square baking pan with cooking spray.

Then I scraped the batter into the baking pan.

Now I sprinkled the remaining streusel topping over the batter.

I baked the Rhubarb Streusel Coffee Cake in a preheated 350F oven for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.

After removing the pan from the oven I allowed the coffee cake to cool.
