Ok, so the crafting thing isn't working yet except for my cross stitch which is slowly but surely progressing nicely, but anything else is not being done right now even though I have many projects in mind but somehow cannot yet decide on the exact layout so it will have to wait a few more days.
In the meantime, however, I've been baking :) Such yummy goodies that I just had to share. This weekend I made rhubarb muffins. I LOVE rhubarb muffins! The whole sweet/sour idea is really nice, and yes it contains a lot of sugar but that's why the muffins are so small, hihi ;)
Because the rhubarb will give the muffins a pink centre, I used pink cupcake liners for these muffins. I even found some princess ones in Poundland, complete with designs of wands, shoes, and tiny handbags on them. Too cute! Good thing the bf didn't notice ;)
You want to know the recipe? It originally came from here. I got it via email from a friend but I managed to track it down online :)
- 1 egg
- 1/4 c. vegetable oil
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. additional sugar
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1 1/2 c. flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 c. cut up rhubarb
Stir together rhubarb and 2 tablespoons of sugar and set aside. Spray large muffin cups with vegetable oil cooking spray. Beat egg, stir in milk and oil. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add rhubarb/sugar mix to dry ingredients. Add liquid mixture, stir just until moistened. Do not over mix. Fill large muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Loosen immediately with spatula.
This recipe will make 6 large muffins or 12 regular sized muffins. And they are soooooo good! You MUST try them :) After all, it is the season for it!
I would love to know what you think of these, I think are absolutely divine. Please let me know and happy baking!
