Cinnamon-Rhubarb Muffins

This is a recipe adapted from a Facebook post by my friend Phyllis. Since I am famous for bringing delicious muffins to work, she tagged me and suggested that I try the recipe, so she could have some. This recipe makes about 28 muffins.

  • 1 cube unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2 large eggs

I didn’t worry about completely thawing the rhubarb. I just rinsed it with cold water and let it sit in the strainer while I did the other preparations.
