'RHUBY TUESDAY'S" Sour Cream Rhubarb Muffins

After testing many rhubarb muffin recipes over the past few years, this one wins - hands down!  It seems I have better results when baking anything that has sour cream or buttermilk as an ingredient.  I like how they add moisture and a delicate taste to baked goods.

I hope you'll give this quick and easy recipe a try.

Sour Cream Rhubarb Muffins
Preheat your oven to 400F
2 Cups Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
Whisk together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.  In a separate bowl whisk together till smooth:
1 Cup Sour Cream
8 Tbsp. melted butter
2 lrg. eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
Add the wet ingredients into the dry mixture, stir gently just until moistened. Do not over mix.  Fold in:
1 1/2 Cups of fresh finely chopped rhubarb
Line a muffin tin with 12 large baking cups and fill with batter.  Sprinkle each cup with the topping:
3 Tbsp. sugar mixed with 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Place in preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes

Now kick back and enjoy a warm muffin with your favourite cuppa............
