The baker crows at midnight

These will go nicely with my birthday breakfast tomorrow morning.

Blueberry Rhubarb Muffins
Makes 12 muffins

1-1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 cup plain yogurt or milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup diced rhubarb
1 cup berries [the original recipe calls for strawberries, I used blueberries]

Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, combine egg, yogurt, oil, and vanilla. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until all ingredients are moistened. Fold rhubarb and berries into batter.

Divide batter between 12 greased muffin cups. [With blueberries, it might be better to use paper cups.] Sprinkle tops generously with sugar. Bake in preheated oven at 400 F. for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Adapted from Joan Halquist's recipe, in "The Minnesota Homegrown Cookbook."
