Joe’s Chocolate Rhubarb Berry Coffee Cake

Decided to try something different tonight and picked some fresh rhubarb and raspberries for a try at a coffee cake… I took a recipe I had found on Pinterest and modified it hoping beyond hope it would turn out!  Here is my version that I have named:

Joe’s Chocolate Rhubarb Berry Coffee Cake :

  • Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min.
  • Yield: 12-15 Servings


  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) triple chocolate fudge cake mix, divided
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries  (you could substitute any berries)
  • 1/2 cup powered sugar drizzle (milk and powdered sugar)


  • In a large bowl, combine 2/3 cup cake mix and sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Add walnuts; set aside.
  •    In another bowl, combine the sour cream, eggs and remaining cake mix; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Fold in rhubarb and raspberries. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture.
  •    Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  •    Drizzle powdered sugar mix over cake when cooled.
  • If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely.  Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
  • Yield: 12-15 servings.
