I like to bake these tasty muffins fresh in the morning and share them with elderly neighbors who no longer bake for themselves. The farm where my husband and I live has been in my family for 110 years. In fact, I was born here!

"These are terrific! I made them with NO changes to the recipe. They have exactly the right amount of rhubarb to have some in every bite. Have made several times and always have to share the recipe."
