Anything Goes Fruit muffins are deliciousThis is a delicious muffin base that works equally well with a variety of fruit add-ins – try raspberries, blueberries, rhubarb, or cranberries! My personal favorite is rhubarb. We have a nice crop of it that grows in my kitchen garden, and one of my neighbors often has extra that she is willing to share, as well. You can often find rhubarb in a well-stocked supermarket if you aren’t fortunate enough to have this easy-to-grow plant in your own garden or in a kindly neighbors garden!
