Rhubarb Blueberry Muffins Recipe

"We were camping, and I didn’t have enough milk for my usual blueberry muffin recipe,” recalls Dorothy Ross of Ear Falls, Ontario. “I did have some sour cream and a bit of rhubarb, so I used those. The muffins were awesome, and now I make them often!”
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb


  • 1. In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and sour cream. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Fold in blueberries and rhubarb.
  • 2. Fill 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups about two-thirds full. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, do not thaw before adding to batter. If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

"I made a double batch and this is MAGNIFICENT! I used fresh rhubarb from the garden and frozen blueberries from last year's harvest. My husband is going through cancer treatment and I think he will be able to swallow these. Very moist. I will make a few batches for the freezer as a quick snack option. And then the Rhubarb-Strawberry Jam. Also delish."

"I made these today for a cooking challenge on the TOH Community Forums; however, I substituted apples for the rhubarb since we have such a hard time getting rhubarb here and my husband won't eat it. I'm sure this recipe is delicious with rhubarb. I also substituted Splenda for the sugar since he cannot eat sugar. The muffins were delicious. I would definitely have these muffins again."

"Nice and moist but I think they could use either use a little more sugar in the recipe or a sprinkling of a sugar/cinnamon on top or a basic streusel topping."
