One of our favorite ways to use rhubarb is in these muffins. The cinnamon-sugar crumble topping makes them especially yummy!
- 1 1⁄2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup canola oil
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 1⁄2 cups rhubarb, diced
- 1⁄2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 cups white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 2⁄3 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Beat together brown sugar, oil, eggs and buttermilk. Add rhubarb.
- In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add to rhubarb mixture mixing until just moistened.
- Spoon batter into greased muffin pans or muffin cups about half full. Sprinkle with crumble and lightly press into batter.
- Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Crumble: Mix together crumble ingredients until well combined.
I downloaded this recipe years ago, but only got round to making them today. They are delicious - with a couple of changes. I'm vegan so just left out the egg, but I still found the mixture very wet. Next time I'll reduce one of the other liquids and/or leave out the applesauce (not something we use in the UK anyway). Also I find measuring everything in cups extremely irritating - especially solids such as rhubarb (how do you measure out 1 1/2 cups of rhubarb?!) so as I was measuring everything out I weighed it and wrote it out on the recipe for next time, and used 1/2lb of rhubarb (which worked out well). Also the topping is not a 'crumble' - it's just cinnamon sugar. I probably won't use it next time, or maybe I'll add some oats to it.
I think I overdid the crumble, but otherwise these were a welcome change. Would add extra rhubarb next time (^o^) THanks!!
These were great! An easy way to use up some rhubarb that the whole family enjoyed. This made 24 standard-size muffins. I will make these again! Thanks for posting.
