  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream (35%)
Cakes:
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Method

Topping: In large bowl, stir together rhubarb, brown sugar and cornstarch; stir in butter. Divide among greased 12-count muffin pan, pressing batter with back of spoon. Set aside.

Cakes: In bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda; stir into butter mixture, alternating with milk, making 2 additions of flour mixture and 1 of milk.

Spoon batter over top of rhubarb mixture. Bake in 350°F oven until cake tester inserted in centre of several comes out clean, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool in pan for 3 minutes. Carefully invert onto serving platter.

Butterscotch Sauce: While cakes are cooling, in small saucepan, cook brown sugar and butter over medium heat, stirring, until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in cream. Drizzle over cakes.

Make it year-round: Substitute 4 cups frozen sliced rhubarb, thawed and thoroughly patted dry, for the fresh rhubarb.
