Nut-Topped Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins Recipe

Nut-Topped Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

2 ¾ cups flour

1 1/3 cups brown sugar

2 ½ tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. salt

1 egg

1 cup buttermilk

½ cup canola oil

2 tsp. vanilla

1 cup fresh chopped strawberries

¾ cup diced fresh or frozen rhubarb

Topping:   ½ cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

½ tsp. cinnamon

1 Tbsp. cold butter

In a large bowl, combine the first six (6) ingredients.  In another bowl, whisk the egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.  Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Fold in strawberries and rhubarb.  Fill greased or paper lined muffin cups two-thirds full.

In a small, combine the pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Sprinkle over batter.

Bake at 400 F. for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.  Serve warm.        1 ½ dozen
