I would rate this a 4star.. Everyone enjoyed them; but all including myself thought that there was a baking powder taste to them like in a biscuit. Should there be 1 tablespoon of baking powder oris this an error
Very Disapointing. 1 Nothing special about muffins.- actually little taste, rather blah! No evidence of strawberries in batter- only a pinkish hue and litle trace of rubarb. 2. Best part was the sugar coating the top. 3. Mine were not "delicious" or Gone. Many left over from the group they were served to --will not make again.
The first time I made these muffins they were not very good. Just bland. I decided that I must have cut up the fruit too small. So, I tried making them a second time and sprinkled brown sugar on the fruit and cut the fruit into larger pieces. Oh, and the second time I also pretty much doubled the strawberry. I would definitely recommend at least 1 cup of rhubarb and 1 cup strawberry, if not more. They were better the second time, but still not great. Just still kind of bland. It might need vanilla extract or lemon juice or something else to add a little more flavor. I added 1/4th of a cup of whole wheat flour the second time too, trying to add more flavor. i will eat them all, they're "good" but they aren't great on the flavor factor. I bet kids would like them though. :)
Question??TIP says adjust bake time if using frozen fruit, so do we ADD 15-22 min more or SHORTEN the time to that amount? Seems to me if using frozen fruit, you would need to bake it longer, but almost double???

Let’s be honest – I’m always looking for quick meal ideas. By the time I get home from work, I have about a half hour to throw dinner together and get it on the table. Most (okay, ALL of the time) I have an unhappy one-year-old pulling at my leg as if to say, “Mom, why is there not food on my high chair tray yet?!” So, when it comes to meals, the quicker the better.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
You know the old saying, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream,” right? Well, ice cream is a favorite, but if there is any summertime sweet treat that I find to be scream-worthy , it is, hands down, the s’more. More ...
