Rhubarb and strawberries are a great match. You can substitute half the rhubarb with an equal weight of quartered berries.

    This recipe got my attention because it looks similar to the crumb cake my mother used to bake. It goes without saying that I had to try it immediately, however, I had no rhubarb. So, I improvised and used about 1/2 cup of strawberry preserves instead of the rhubarb filling. It turned out great and the taste was even better the day after I made it!

    this is definitely more of a coffee cake than a bar. for a delicious rhubarb bar recipe, use this: it uses streusel too, which is great!

    I was quite disappointed in this recipe. This is due in part that I was expecting one thing and go something quite different, based on the fact that the recipe is a misnomer. This is a cake, not a crumb. I should have been clued into this when a "streusel" topping was shown that isn't a streusel at all (melted butter does not make a streusel). I was expecting something like a crisp with a cakey bottom layer. But, it wasn't. Will not make again. Flavor good, product not a crumb bar.

    This is a nice recipe but all agreed that it needs more fruit and less crumb topping. The flavors are great so i think if I make it again I'll use a 8 X 11 pan and double the rhubarb part.

    LOVE this recipe! Can't wait to make it again now that rhubarb is in season.

    This is a great showcase for the rhubarb flavor and it was simple to make. I would possibly halve the topping amount since it seemed a little too dry, a dollop of whipped cream would take care of that though. I tried it hot and cold and I prefer the rhubarb cold but the cake warm, oh well, it was yummy any way I ate it. I will make this again.

    I made this using 1/2 strawberries and 1/2 rhubarb since we love this combo. We did love this quick and easy recipe. I have also made the Blackberry Crumb which is the exact recipe except for fruit plus a few other items. The rhubarb recipe is better written and easier to read while cooking, in my opinion, with crumb topping ingredients given separately from the cake ingredients. I will make this again with other fruit of the season.
