Strawberry Rhubarb Muffin Cake

It's time for our monthly edition of The Cake Slice Bakers.....
You may be a little confused as you continue reading and see that there is now Strawberry Rhubarb Muffin Cake as our options this month.  That is one of the things I love about this year's cookbook.  Many of the recipes include variations/options.  

In this case, Zoe, suggested using rhubarb instead of blueberries.  Since my rhubarb was takng over my garden, I decided to go with that.  At the last minute, I noted that I had some strawberries in the refrigerator that needed to be used.  Voila......a delicious cake for me to take to a neighborhood gathering.  It was a huge hit.

Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is Zoë Bakes Cakes by Zoē François. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!

Follow our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the links below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book.

It is a new year and a new book - Zoë Bakes Cakes - and our choices for July 2022 were ~

Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 1 H & 10 MTotal time: 1 H & 20 M


  • 1 1/2 stick butter, divided, 10 T. room temp, 2 T. chilled
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 c. almond flour
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 3 c. fresh or frozen, fruit of choice, cut to uniform dice (I used strawberries and rhubarb)
  • 1/2 c. pecans
  • 3 T. sugar
  • 1/2 t. sugar
  • pinch of salt


  1. Place the room temperature butter, sugar, flours, baking powder, salt, eggs, milk and vanilla into the bowl of a food processor. Run until smooth.
  2. Scrape the batter into a 9" square baking pan that has been treated with baking spray.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375* oven for about 45 minutes, until golden brown and set in the middle.
  4. Meanwhile, wipe out bowl of food processor and return to base. Place the pecans, sugar, chilled butter and salt in the processor and pulse 3-4 times until crumbly.
  5. Sprinkle the pecan streusel over the cake and continue to bake until a skewer inserted removes cleanly, about another 20-25 minutes.
  6. Let the cake cool in the pan before serving.
