Cooking Thursday

I thought I would share a recipe that is perfect for this time of year when rhubarb is ready. It's a coffee cake that is easy to throw together, and is so good!
For more recipes, visit Sandra at Diary of a SAHM.

Rhubarb Coffee Cake

1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 heaping cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups rhubarb, cut thinly
1/2 package strawberry jello
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together oil, sugar and egg. Add milk then stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in rhubarb. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan.
Sprinkle the 1/2 package of jello over top and swirl through batter with a knife.
Mix together the 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the batter.
Bake for 40 minutes or until cake tests done.
Serve topped with whipped topping.

It looks delicious. I've only had rhubarb one time in my life and it wasn't bad at all.
