Brown Sugar Rhubarb Muffins
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar

- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

- In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in rhubarb and walnuts.
- Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.

We enjoyed the muffins. I did add cinnamon to the batter also. Don't forget to add the topping before baking. The recipe does not state that.
