Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper muffin cases. Stir the sugar and rhubarb together and set aside while you make the crumble topping. Mix together the muscovado sugar with the flour, oats and cinnamon, then rub in the butter until clumpy with your fingertips.
  2. Stir the oil and egg, vanilla and buttermilk into the sugary rhubarb (don’t worry if it’s a little bit juicy). Now, add the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and stir well.
  3. Quickly spoon into the cases, then scatter each with a thick layer of the crumble mixture. Bake for 15-18 mins until golden and a cocktail stick poked into the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

These went down a treat with everyone, so easy and yummy. I had a little bit too much crumble topping but other than that no complaints.

I used milk and as I don't like the texture of oil in baking, I melted butter instead ... which I then forgot to add. They turned out perfect though. I'm going to make these again tonight I think, with raspberries. I might even forego the crumble topping and just add oats instead.

Ace and the kids loved them. A great way to introduce rhubarb into kiddies food eating. Disappeared in 2 days and making them again today!

Great recipe! Easy to make and the muffins are yummie.....
The one thing I would do different the next time I'll make them, is to add more rhubarb. But that is all.

Really great recipe. I followed the recipe without any tweaking! The muffins were moist without being soggy. The crumble topping nice and crunchy. I have had lots of great compliments.

So easy and so yummy! I hope the calorie count is right as seems very low but I suppose not a huge amount of fat in them. Only change I made was to use 125ml of Greek yoghurt instead of buttermilk. Will definitely be making again - be good to serve as a dessert warm with a dollop of ice cream too.

Very good, I also used milk and teaspoon of lemon juice as had no buttermilk. Could do with a bit more crumble topping though! Will make a bit extra next time.

have made these several times now and really love them. Didn't have buttermilk the first time so used low fat natural yogurt, and also made some with milk and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Have since made them with buttermilk as well. All versions were yummy but the ones made with yogurt were my favourites. Took a batch in to work for teabreak and they disappeared very quickly!!

Just eaten one of these warm from the oven and they are lovely. I'm sure they'd be just as nice without the crumble topping.
Great way to use up some allotment rhubarb!

Made this twice. Followed the recipe the first time but most of the rhubarb dissolved into the cake. The second time I doubled the amount of rhubarb and added some finely chopped stem ginger. Topping was really crunchy at first but you need to eat within a couple of days (not a problem!) as goes a bit soggy after that, but be OK with custard
