Rhubarb, Orange, Coffee Cake

*Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely.
Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out. The rhubarb stalks I used for this recipe were very small, so I used 2 cups. If your stalks of rhubarb are large, you will probably want to use 1 cup.
