It’s rhubarb season over here! Do you love how zippy and tangy rhubarb is as much as I do?! It just tastes SO good mixed with sweeter things like ice cream or a sugary crumb topping. The other week, I shared my favourite strawberry rhubarb pie recipe, and today I wanted to share with you my go-to rhubarb cake recipe: this delicious rhubarb crumb cake! If you’re of German heritage like I am, you might also call it rhubarb streuselkuchen.

You've GOT to try this rhubarb cake! It's delcious, moist, flavourful and so yummy!

I really like this cake because it’s such a great mix of sweet and sour flavours. I also like that it’s made with yogurt for a lighter feel. The crumb topping makes my German roots so happy, too!

We often buy a large pack of single-sized yogurt for our family. No one likes the vanilla flavoured ones (except for me), so I’ll save them and use them later for this cake. I love how the vanilla flavouring in the yogurt tastes in this cake!
