Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 40 mins
Total Time: 1 hr
Servings: 8
Yield: 1 9-inch buckle


Strawberry-Rhubarb Filling:

1 ½ cups diced fresh rhubarb
1 ½ cups diced fresh strawberries
½ cup white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons water, divided
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Cake Batter:

cooking spray
½ cup butter softened
½ cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup plain yogurt
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt


3 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ cup flour
2 tablespoons butter


Combine rhubarb, strawberries, 1/2 cup sugar, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon of water in a saucepan. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until mixture begins to boil, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low.

In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 2 tablespoons of water with cornstarch until cornstarch is dissolved. Add mixture to the saucepan and continue cooking fruit until mixture begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Remove from stove and set aside to cool.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch deep dish pie pan with non-stick cooking spray, and place it on a baking sheet.

Beat 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of sugar with an electric mixer in a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla extract, and yogurt. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix until just combined. Spread 2/3 of the batter into the prepared pan. Pour strawberry-rhubarb filling on top of the batter. Spread the remaining 1/3 of the batter in small mounds atop the filling. Set aside.

Combine brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, and 2 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl. Mix using a fork, a pastry blender, or your hands, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle on top of the batter and filling.

Bake in the preheated oven until the cake topping is nicely browned, about 35 minutes. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of sweetened whipped cream, if desired.
