well now.  
edgar would call it a muppin, and nana would call it a cupcake...regardless, it is a  baked goods recipe that is worth the trouble of a little extra choppin' and toppin'.  

strawberry rhubarb muffins
combine in one bowl:
1 C all purpose flour
1 1/2 C whole wheat flour
1 C brown sugar
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt

combine in another bowl:
1 C  chopped strawberries
1 C chopped rhubarb
1 large egg
 1/4 C cooking oil
1 C soured goat milk
(or any milk, even soy...just add a tsp lemon juice)

dump wet ingredients into dry, stir until just moistened throughout. 

fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full, 
top with a mixture of 
cinnamon (1/2 t) 
and brown sugar (1/3 C)
bake at 375 degrees F 
for about 20 minutes.
cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing and devouring for tea-time.
