These Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins are the perfect combination of sweet and tart and are finished with an irresistible crunchy sugar topping.
I like to eat a muffin that isn’t too sweet, isn’t soggy, and has a nice crumb. There is nothing worse than seeing a gorgeous muffin and being disappointed with your first bite. But these Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins are anything but disappointing. In fact, they are so tasty, you are going to host brunch this weekend just so you have a reason to bake a batch of these muffins.
Now, I’m generally a purist and don’t mix other fruits in my rhubarb baking, but I make an exception with these Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins. The sweetness of the strawberries balances the tartness of the rhubarb, which makes for a blissfully delicious muffin. Plus, you can make the batter in just 10 minutes and only use one bowl. Can it get any better?
The crunchy muffin top. The turbinado sugar sprinkled on top is just like magic. It adds this spectacular crunch to the muffin top. Making it anything but soggy. So don’t skip it. Trust me on that one.
Gorgeous and delicious, these Strawberry Rhubarb muffins are your slam dunk summer brunch addition. You can’t go wrong with them. I mean, how could you when you get delicious rhubarb flavor in every single bite?
