Made these for Easter morning (with the leftover fruits for a pie). These were very easy to make. I took a hint from ksparker's advice and coated the strawberries and rhubarb in 1/8 cup of sugar before mixing it into the mix. No tartness here. :) Thanks for this delightful recipe to unberry ourselves. :)
I used frozen strawberries instead of the fresh and they were marvelous. Great recipe!
I made these for the church Easter breakfast. These were very easy to make. For fun I baked some in my scone pan. They tasted more like a biscuit then a muffin. I like more of a moist cinnamon flavor with rhubarb. Overall tasty but I will work on the sugar and spice next time.
