When I was young, a good cook originally from Poland recommended this recipe to me. The tangy rhubarb center makes these fluffy muffins extra scrumptious and perfect for breakfast or snacking. -Barbara Perry, Saginaw, Michigan

"These muffins were so good! The only change that I made to the recipe was to add a second tablespoon of batter to the bottom of the muffin tin. One did not cover the bottom and I did not want the filling to stick to the bottom. I still had enough batter to cover the top after the filling was added."
