Rhubarb is in season and today I’m sharing a recipe from our church cookbook. I like this recipe because it is quick and easy. It, also, makes about 30 muffins at once! Oh, and besides that, the muffins are delicious! The topping includes sugar, cinnamon, nuts, and butter. It gives the muffins an added touch of sweetness and crunch.

Rhubarb Muffins


1 egg, beaten

1  1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup buttermilk

1 tsp. soda

2/3 cup oil

1 tsp. vanilla

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cup rhubarb, finely chopped

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) or pecans


Mix together…

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup walnuts or pecans

2 tsp. butter, melted


Beat egg and add other ingredients in order listed, stirring in rhubarb and nuts (optional) by hand. Line muffin tins with papers and fill cups 2/3 full. Put 1 teaspoon of topping on each muffin before baking.

    We had rhubarb in our yard while I was growing up. I keep seeing all of these yummy rhubarb recipes, and think I need to plant some!

    • Yes, it is very easy to grow! You’ll always have it on hand every spring! It freezes well, too!

    • Yes, plant some! It sure is easy to grow and you have it very handy!

  5. Here from Handmade Tuesdays! Being from the deep south, rhubarb wasn’t even a word in my vocabulary until I married my husband, who is from Indiana. It didn’t sound appetizing to me at all when he was describing it. However, we enjoy it now as often as our Publix carries it, it’s delicious! I will have to give these rhubarb muffins a try because I’m always looking at new ways to incorporate rhubarb into new dishes.

    • I didn’t know that southern people didn’t know about rhubarb. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Do you know I’ve never tried rhubarb? I know, shocker right! But these look delicious!

    • Really? You must try a recipe and you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
