Rhubarb Crumb Cake - where did I go wrong?

I made the recipe that was in the NY Times on Wednesday - http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/06/din...

The cake rose over the crumbs. Any ideas why?

    I'm not going to try to diagnose your cake problem but I do want to share this recipe for Rhubarb Coffeecake that I made yesterday. It was quite simply the best coffee cake I have ever made. Period. Absolutely delicious and very easy. I used hazelnuts in the crumble topping and I think it really added a European flavour to the cake. My brunch guests went crazy. Here's the link:

      That does sound good. Think I'll try that next.

        Do you think I could sub sour cream and/or yoghurt for the buttermilk?

          Actually I used yogurt. 2% plain.

        I have no clue what you did but I simplified the recipe here and my version was super delicious: http://www.writingwithmymouthfull.com...
