"Wasn't crazy about the rhubarb. The second time I made these, I added cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to the muffin dough and served them as cinnamon muffins. Oh and I used a mini muffin tin and subtracted a few baking minutes. Delicious."

"These are the best muffins ever. I bake a LOT of muffins, and these absolutely top the list. I've never really enjoyed rhubarb until I made these. Even my very picky husband said these were amazing. They rose beautifully and had a very nice texture - not too dense and not too dry. I will definitely be making these again. I need to plant more rhubarb."
