Cinnamon-Rhubarb Muffins

Cinnamon-Rhubarb Muffins | Bake the World a Better Place

Even though it feels like summer, here in the northern hemisphere we’re still technically in the spring season for another week. So while spring is still here, you might as well take advantage of the spring veggies. Okay, I’m really only talking about one veggie here: rhubarb. Before baking these muffins, I couldn’t remember if I’ve even tried rhubarb before.  So we thought we should try rhubarb added into a sweet. We’re now officially obsessed with rhubarb added into sweets! We guarantee you’ll be obsessed too… or at least obsessed with these cinnamon-rhubarb muffins.

-1 tsp. ground cinnamon

-½ tsp. baking soda

-½ tsp. kosher salt

-1 cup sour cream

-8 tbs. butter, melted

-2 large eggs

-1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

-1 ½ cup diced rhubarb


-3 tbs. granulated sugar

-½ tsp. ground cinnamon

Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk the ingredients together. In a separate bowl, add the sour cream, slightly cooled melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk these ingredients well and pour the mixture into the bowl of dry ingredient. Stir. Add the diced rhubarb, stirring gently.

Add the batter into lined muffin cups, enough to where the batter comes a bit higher than the cups. In a small bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon together. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar topping on top of each unbaked muffin. Bake at 400F until golden brown, about 18-20 minutes.
