Rhubarb and orange muffins

Pudding & Cake Serves 12 50 min
These easy-to-make muffins are moist and not overly sweet, hefty but not heavy. They're great as a fruity snack, or for breakfast if you tone down the sugar a little and replace 100g of the plain flour for whole wheat. Try with cinnamon, or with apple substituted for some of the rhubarb.

Ingredients

  • 300g plain flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 300-400g rhubarb, finely diced
  • grated zest of 1 orange
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 200ml milk
  • 100g butter, melted
