Update: Für das deutsche Rezept nach unten scrollen!

We spotted the first rhubarb from Germany this year in the supermarket. But we had to lay our hands on it, nonetheless. At the farmer’s market they had the first German asparagus last weekend. But for 15 €/kg I can resist a few weeks more. Although I love asparagus, too. So at home we thought about what to do with the rhubarb. It didn’t want to make a cake, since it’s often too much for us two to eat. As I made some really good muffins a few days before, they came to my mind. As well as a crumble. So we made both.  

Rhubarb Muffins

The muffin recipe is a variation of my new favourite muffin recipe, for which I searched really really long. In fact I looked for the perfect chocolate chip muffin recipe. But that’s another story. But be sure, it will follow! Because those chocolate chip muffins are to die for. The rhubarb muffins are slightly crispy on the outside, but very soft inside, filled with creamy rhubarb bites. It’s just perfect for welcoming spring.

Spring itself welcomed me too, with a nice allergy to some pollen. I have no clue, since it’s the first time ever. But I know it’s a pollen allergy, since my eyes are red and sore, which they wouldn’t, if it would be a normal cold  (my other symptoms would suggest I have a cold). Thank you spring, I welcome you nonetheless (especially because my enemy – the winter – has gone finally)!  

If you want to get rid of the last frozen rhubarb remains in your freezer – like I did some weeks ago, which was just right, cause who wants to eat the old one from last year, if you can have fresh one from this year?- I recommend you my quick and easy rhubarb streusel cake, which I posted last year. You can even bake it with the frozen rhubarb bites! I wouldn’t try the muffins with the frozen rhubarb, because they will get eventually too soggy. And no one fancies soggy muffins…

    How I love rhubarb! And I like that you put yoghurt into your muffin mix. I guess it will make them nice and moist in the same way that buttermilk does?

    Rhubarb is one marvelous ingredient I never had a chance to lay my hands on, practically it is not available here not even in canned form. So for now I could only enjoy your photos and hope that someday they might import rhubarb to thailand 🙂
