Since I collect muffin recipes as well as rhubarb recipes, this one was a real find! These muffins are good either for breakfast with butter or as a dessert topped with whipped cream.


  • 1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups diced fresh rhubarb
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a bowl, combine first five ingredients; mix well. Stir in flour, salt, rhubarb, baking soda, baking powder and nuts. Pour into greased or paper-lined muffin cups. Mix topping ingredients; sprinkle over muffins and press lightly into batter. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with moist crumbs, 15-18 minutes.
