  1. These are awesome, just pulled some stalks up and made em to go with our luncheon salad!
  2. turned out great. looked like a baker made them. very easy.
  3. WOW....fantastic!. I had to make up for a shortfall of brown sugar so, I subbed half white sugar and added 1 1/2 tbsp (45ml) of molasses. I also baked it about 45 min in a 8x8 pan rather than muffin tins. My rhubarb was thawed from the freezer so I used 4 well squeezed hand fulls. When mixing I mixed all the wet ingredients very well, folding in the flour mixture gently and carefully folding in the rhubarb. This is definitely going into my menu rotation as I freeze rhubarb from my garden. I'm also thinking of adding cardamom or nutmeg next time.
  4. followed the recipe exactly and turned out well
  5. Amazing... I used organic whole wheat flour and cut down the sugar a bit and they were still great. I've tried honey butter in the past and didn't like it at all. I think the lemon rind is what made it so much better than what I've tried before.
