Tasty Tuesday

 Mom finally got around to picking a couple of stalks of rhubarb from our back yard.  The intermutts say that color has nothing to do with the harvest.  The stalks do not have to be red.   You wait until the stalks are 8-10 inches long.

She decided to make rhubarb muffins:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans. In a small bowl, stir together milk, lemon juice and vanilla; let stand for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, oil and egg. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda, stir into sugar mixture alternately with the milk mixture just until combined. Fold in rhubarb and nuts. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.

In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and butter. Sprinkle this mixture over the unbaked loaves.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean.


We cut the recipe in half to make the muffins.   We didn't have walnuts.  Mom has mixed nuts so we used what we had - almonds, cashews and pistachios.  
Mom decided not to add the topping before baking.  
Of course, I needed to tasteTest!
Out of the oven after 35 minutes and ready to eat~~

The muffins are wonderful and we will make them again and next time, we will be adding the topping. 

Happy Tuesday, everybuddy!

Love ya lots♥

  5. Those muffins sure look yummy! How nice that you have your own rhubarb to pick right in your yard.

  6. Oh Molly, we would love to try these too!!

  7. I love using rhubarb for jam...particularly strawberry/rhubarb jam, Mmmm! That would go good on those muffins, too.

  8. We haven't had rhubarb in ages! Thanks for the yummy recipes.

  9. Rhubarb muffins sound wonderful. Gail had a rhubarb scone in the cafe on Sunday after the fox terrier walk but I was left in the car for some unfathomable reason...

  10. I will add the recipe to my file too. I baked a strawberry rhubarb sheet cake with a nut topping on Saturday - half is gone! I love rhubarb! Thank your Mom for the recipe!!

  11. Rhubarb muffins, yum! I grew up with tons or rhubarb in the back yard and there was lots of rhubarb things on the menu.

  12. Our mom loves rhubarb but it is hard to come by and expensive around here. She makes sauce out of it.

  13. Thank you for this yummy recipe.

  14. Java Bean: "Our Dada was talking with his Mama and Dada about rhubarb recently and about how his Mama eats it raw, even though it's very bitter!"
    Lulu: "Rumor has it that Dada's Mama is able to do this on account of she is so sweet herself."

  15. Lady was just talking to the neighbour about rhubarb at lunch today. She was saying she didn't know if she could harvest hers this year. Apparently it needs a couple years. Who knew! Yours looks very yummy!
