Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1/4 c. coconut oil (or other oil, or butter)
1/2 c. agave nectar (or use sugar and add a little extra milk)
2 large eggs
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. brown rice flour
3/4 c. sorghum flour
1/2 c. potato starch
1 tsp. xanthan gum
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 – 1/2 c. almond milk (or regular milk)
2 c. chopped rhubarb


Topping:

1/2 c. gluten free flour mix (just use whatever flour mix you have on hand)
1/2 c. brown sugar
3 Tb. butter (or substitute)


Wash and trim the rhubarb.  Chop it into 1/4 – 1/2 inch pieces.  Set aside.  In your mixer bowl, beat together the coconut oil, agave, eggs, and sugar.  Mix in the vanilla.  In a smaller bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients.  Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mix.  Use 1/3 c. milk and add the rest if the batter seems too thick.  Stir in the rhubarb and pour it all into a greased 9 x 13 inch pan.

Combine the topping ingredients, cutting in the cold butter with a pastry blender or fork.  Sprinkle on top of the batter.  Bake at 350 degrees about 45 minutes or until the cake tests done.
