Rhubarb Rhubarb

I don't have any space to grow things but my friend Siobhan has both a garden and allotment and kindly brought me some rhubarb round earlier. At first I was thinking of stewing it to have with porridge but then I came up with these muffins. Very quick and easy and just 1 bowl to wash! The combination of rhubarb and orange is lovely.

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.
