Streusel Topped Rhubarb Muffins
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar (I reduced this amount a bit)
1 tsp salt (I didn't bother)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup vegetable oil (I reduced this to 1/2 cup, especially when using drained, thawed rhubarb)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cups finely chopped rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp butter or margarine, melted
2 tsp ground cinnamon
Combine first 5 ingredients. Combine egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla in another bowl, and stir into the dry ingredients gently. Fold in rhubarb. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin tins about half full. Combine topping ingredients in another bowl and sprinkle over each muffin. Bake at 375 degrees F for 16-18 minutes or until muffins test done.
