Rhubarb and Orange Muffins

When my friend brought me rhubarb from her garden, there was only one thing to do....

Orange Rhubarb Muffins

Makes 12

2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
½ teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon of salt
1 cup of orange juice (approx juice of 2 oranges)
½ cup of sunflower oil
Zest of 1 unwaxed orange
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
11/2 cups of finely diced rhubarb (2 sticks)

Pre-heat the oven to 190C/ 375F/Gas 5.

Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, ginger, cinnamon and salt.

Make a well in the centre and add the orange juice, oil, zest and vanilla extract.

Give it a few stirs then fold in the diced rhubarb. Stir until just combined.

Fill the muffin cases two thirds of the way up.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until just browned and a toothpick comes out clean.
