 Have not been baking to much lately but am back in business! And i got to say having the portable AC running  makes baking in summertime even "do-able"without melting away :) 
Enjoy this recipe, not to sweet and oh sooooooo good!

streusel ingredients :

  -1 stick of butter (8 oz)
  -1/3 cup+ 2 tbsp suger 
  -3/4 to 1 cup of flour

heat the butter on medium heat, just to melt it all, stir in cinnamon , take from heat ,stir in sugar, now slowly add flour to make it non liquid ( didn't take me a whole cup last time but it differs with the temp!), take out of pot and place in a bowl , set in the fridge.

preheat oven to 400degree F,

STIR in rhubarb +buttermilk
in another bowl mix other dry ingredients together
