I don’t share a many recipes on the blog unless they are truly a favorite. My daughter and I were hanging out this week and we decided to whip up a batch of our favorite strawberry rhubarb muffins, so I grabbed the camera so I could share the recipe with you!
If you’re not a fan of rhubarb, I encourage you to give these a try anyway. My hubby thought he hated rhubarb, but he definitely approves of these! If you really don’t like rhubarb, simply double your strawberries and omit the rhubarb.
Start by coarsely chopping your strawberries and rhubarb. (There’s a reason this looks like a lot of fruit. We tripled the recipe for our large family.)
Grab your sugar. (Do you like my label? See how I organize my pantry and what labels I use here.)
Mix up the dry ingredients.
After beating the eggs and oil into the milk, pour it into the dry ingredients.
Mix just until the dough is moist. I’ll warn you…this dough is very thick. In fact, it’s the thickest muffin mix I’ve ever made. Every time I make them I wonder if they’re going to be too tough, but they’re not.
Fold in the fruit.
Scoop it into greased muffin pans (or have your little helper do it ).
After filling muffin pans, top each muffin with a slice of strawberry and a sprinkle of sugar. Mmmm.
Bake at 375 for 22-25 minutes and this is what you get…
Oh, so delicious!
Enjoy them hot out of the oven with a touch of butter.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! Check out some of my other favorite recipes here.
