When I created these moist muffins one day with our garden-fresh squash, my 3 year-old son kept asking for more. That batch disappeared quickly... and so did the second one! We especially like the topping of brown sugar and cinnamon, which adds a sweet crunch.
Strawberries and rhubarb are a winning combination, and their sweet-tart pairing makes these lovely muffins delightful as part of a meal or as a snack. Remember this recipe when your backyard rhubarb is ready to cut or you see fresh stalks at the store. -Gail Sykora, Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
One of my family's favorite dishes are these muffins. They measure the ingredients and grease the muffin tins, The muffins not only round out most meals, but they also make great grab-and-go snacks on busy mornings.—Joy Cochran, Roy, Washington
We've been making these muffins daily since we opened back in 1987. The recipe is a combination of our favorites from home. We bake at least 30 dozen muffins for the shop every morning.—Anne Maher, Rockland, Maine
I made these moist muffins to take to the office, and they were a hit. Sugared almonds give them a crunchy topping. When strawberries aren't in season, I use individual frozen cut strawberries directly from the freezer.
These delicious muffins were a significant part of the first dinner I had with my wife when we were courting. She's an excellent cook, and that first meal was truly a gourmet's delight. Now whenever she plans a menu and asks for my suggestions, I make sure these muffins are on it. —Robert Luebke, Appleton, Wisconsin
