Strawberry Rhubarb Love


Can't get enough of the classic spring pairing of strawberries and rhubarb? Me neither. So I baked a batch of muffins, dressed up to party with cinnamon streusel topping. These easy to toss together treats are tender pull-apart bites of grainy buckwheat sweetness studded with bits of tart rhubarb. A recipe perfect for brunch or afternoon tea.

Recipe posted May 2009.

These tender little muffins are the perfect bite for a morning snack or afternoon pick-me-up. Wrap and freeze in foil for easy take along treats.

First: Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease or line a 12-muffin pan with paper liners.

Ingredients:

Whisk together:

1/2 cup GF buckwheat flour or brown rice flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup arrowroot starch or tapioca starch
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup organic light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Make a well in the center of the dry mix and add in:

1/4 cup light olive oil
Ener-G Egg Replacer for 2 eggs mixed with warm water (or 2 organic free-range eggs)
1/2 cup warm vanilla nut or soy milk, more if needed
2 teaspoons bourbon vanilla

Stir in and beat by hand until smooth.

Add in:

1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup chopped rhubarb


Stir to mix in the fruit. Spoon the batter into 12 muffin cups. Make the streusel topping.


Streusel Topping Recipe
1/4 cup organic light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons coconut oil or Spectrum Organic Shortening


Instructions:

Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in a tablespoon of the shortening and mix until you have grainy crumbs. Add another tablespoon of shortening if you need it. Tou want a light, sandy crumble.

Spoon the streusel topping onto each muffin.

Bake in the center of a preheated oven for about 18 minutes or so, until golden and firm. If your fruit was cold it will take longer to bake, up to 25 minutes.

Cool briefly on a wire rack, then lift the muffins out of the pan to continue cooling.

These are lovely warm from the oven.

Makes 12 muffins.
