Auntie Bea’s Amazing Rhubarb Muffins


Rhubarb Muffin - with RecipeAuntie Bea made this recipe  for the first time on August 4, 2014 – made an entire batch for us and gave them to us on August 7 (the day before our anniversary :). They were amazing. They looked gorgeous – like something that came right out of a bakery. And YUMMY… oh, were these YUMMY. She photocopied the recipe and gave it to me on Aug 27 when we joined her for dinner at the Villa Cabrini, dining al fresco on their 2nd storey outdoor patio/ garden.  It was lovely.
