I've been making these for years and they are delicious, however we have a few alterations that make them even better. First, we don't put walnuts in the batter, we grind up pecans fairly fine and add them to the topping. It gives them a wonderful crunch and the pecans toast as you cook the muffins giving them an even better flavor. Second, shake the rhubarb in the flour before adding it to the batter so it stays well distributed throughout the batter. Third you can make these muffins as a cake, it works perfectly in a 7x11 pan, but it rises very high so put another pan under it just in case it spills over. I'm usually too lazy to bake muffins so generally make it as a small cake. It also freezes great!
