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.
Tucked into the middle of each moist muffin is a tasty surprise - in the shape of a cube of cream cheese! "The simple filling adds loads of creamy flavor," reveals Denise Nebel of Wayland, Iowa. "The streusel topping is nicely crunchy."
A friend of mine gave me a great recipe for blueberry muffins. I wanted to make a batch, but I didn’t have any blueberries! So I substituted the dried cranberries and played around with the other ingredients until I came up with these tender bites. —Bridget M. Klusman, Otsego, Michigan
