  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 12 cup muffin pans or line with paper cups.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the brown sugar, oil, egg, vanilla and buttermilk with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour in the dry ingredients and mix by hand just until blended. Stir in the rhubarb and walnuts. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, filling almost to the top. In a small bowl, stir together the melted butter, white sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of this mixture on top of each muffin.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops of the muffins spring back when lightly pressed, about 25 minutes. Cool in the pans for at least 10 minutes before removing.

Delicious!! I did make a few changes to the recipe. I used 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder to make them a little more fluffy. I also didn't have buttermilk so I put 1 tbsp. of white vinegar in a 1 cu...

do not change a thing to this recipe unless you are like me and love cinnamon. 1 tsp (or 1 tbsp if you are like me) of cinnamon is a wonderful compliment to this already great muffin. Muffins ...

These are absolutly delicious. I replaced the oil by Apple Sauce to make them less fatening. Excellent

I loved them! YUM! Quite possibly the best muffins I've ever had. I used 2 cups of rhubarb.

My whole family loved these - and I even snuck in whole wheat flour for half of the flour. Yummy!

I really am enjoying these ones. I messed up a little and used the big chunky rhubarb I had cut up to make a crisp - a few of the muffins fell apart because of it. Great recipe - will be making ...
