Calories 150kcal



  • 1 cup stewed rhubarb (approximately)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup brown sugar

For the topping

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


  • Line 8 muffin molds in a tin, or grease with butter. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly beat the egg. Put the stewed rhubarb, egg, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, oil and sugar in a bowl and gently combine. You want it well-mixed, but ideally don't want to break up all the rhubarb.

  1. If you're concerned about over-mixing the batter or breaking up the rhubarb too much, you can mix together the dry ingredients first then add the rest.
  2. This recipe assumes a slightly tart stewed rhubarb, as in our recipe - if yours is very sweet, you may need a little less sugar.
  3. You can easily scale up this recipe by multiplying up all the ingredients.
