Reviews for Rhubarb Sticky Buns
"I have made this recipe many, many times. Family and friends just love it!"
"wonderful simple recipe ! Prepped it ahead, kept it cool..then popped it in oven just as we sat down to lunch. Cold, it is good enough. Warm out of the oven...outstanding !! Also made a batch in mini muffin tins for work and was consumed instantly. Very nice, esp with fresh grated nutmeg."
"Doubtful children loved it. It was an easy recipe that didn't heat the kitchen too long on a July morning."
