A crisp oatmeal topping adds a different twist to these spring favorites from Diane Gagnon-Fee of Tupper Lake, New York. "Friends with a big rhubarb patch often share their bounty with us," she says. "But you can use frozen rhubarb with the same tasty results."

- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

"The muffins did not rise as I expected. The taste was OK, but there is a dip on the top of the muffin instead of a nice raised top."
