Rhubarb Muffins

Carrying on with the theme of Rhubarb I thought I would try and make some Rhubarb Muffins.  I loosely used a recipe (from I have previously used to make apple and cinnamon muffins.


Pre-heat your oven to 170 degrees.

Muffin Base
200g Plain Flour
100g Caster Sugar
50g Soft Brown Sugar
110ml Crème Fraiche
80ml Vegetable Oil
1 large Egg
1-2 sticks of Rhubarb

Muffin Topping
40g Plain FLour
20g Butter
15g Caster Sugar


  1. Combine flour, caster sugar, brown sugar, crème fraiche, vegetable oil and egg in a large bowl.  Mix thoroughly.  Chop rhubarb in to 1cm pieces and then add to your muffin mixture.  Carefully place mixture into your muffin cases.
  2. Make your muffin topping by rubbing together the flour, butter and sugar until it resembles breadcrumbs.  
  3. Sprinkle the muffin topping over the muffin base and place in your pre-heated oven for about 25mins.  

I was really pleased with the outcome.  I was a bit worried that they would be a bit sour and not enough sugar but they were lovely and moist.  These would make a perfect breakfast treat.
