What a pleasure it is to set out a basket of these rhubarb muffins...although the basket doesn't stay full for very long! I have six children and two grandsons, so I do a lot of baking. The snacks are based on a coffee cake recipe.
I was looking for something warm to make for my daughter before school on a rainy morning. So I jazzed up a boxed muffin mix with a chopped apple, walnuts, brown sugar and a fast-to-fix vanilla glaze. The tasty results really hit the spot.

One day when I didn't have apples for my favorite dessert recipe, I used applesauce instead. I also put the batter in muffin cups so the men working cattle at our place could easily eat these treats in the field.

"I'm a retired teacher, and not I stay busy planning and preparing weekly meals at our church," relates Elizabeth Viola. The Rogersville, Tennessee reader bakes these delightful muffins that are like miniature loaves of banana bread sprinkled with a crumb topping.
My husband and children enjoy these tender coffee cake-like muffins as a quick breakfast or snack on the run. The drizzle of glaze makes them pretty enough for company. —Dulcy Grace, Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania
These delightful muffins mimic the great coffee shop treats, but because they use reduced-fat lemon yogurt and egg whites instead of whole eggs, they're much, much lighter. Calvin Hwang - La Mesa, California
