Rhubarb Sticky Buns Recipe

Rhubarb Sticky Buns Recipe

Since I have seven rhubarb plants in my backyard, everything's coming up rosy about now. My husband and two teen sons are crazy about these sticky buns. I discovered the treat in an old recipe file I purchased at a rummage sale.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed
  • BATTER:
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup milk

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, cut butter into brown sugar until crumbly. Stir in rhubarb. Spoon evenly into 12 well-greased muffin cups; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk and mix well.
  • 3. Spoon over rhubarb mixture, filling cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
