"I found this in a country cooking cookbook. It is not overly sweet which is why I enjoy it. I like to serve this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream."

Great muffins and love them with fresh rhubarb best, but frozen works too, if you like them all year round. What a great idea using ice cream!

What a wonderful way to use Rhubarb! Not too overly sweet, I have eaten 3 on their own..... but I am intending to warm them a little and serve with ice-cream tonight. Yum... these are a really nice muffin.

I love rhubarb so when I saw this recipe I immediately printed it out to try. So happy I did, because they were delicious! I served them hot right out of the oven and we did have it with our favorite Vanilla Bean ice cream!

We loved these hot out of the oven with a cup of cocoa. I wouldn't exactly call them dessert, but just about anything is good with ice cream, so if you want a dessert try it by all means!

These were a nice change for me. I am always making muffins and freezing them so I can grab one and go, because I work early hours 4 days a week. I had to use frozen rhubarb but they came out great anyway. I didn't have them with ice cream, but it won't be ruled out. I have added these to my favorite muffins and will make them on a regular basis now!
