    I finally got round to making these yummy muffins yesterday. Rhubarb is now in season so it would be rude not to... ;)

    This is the recipe I based mine off:
    https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1263686/rhubarb-crumble-muffins

    Dairy-free version (my changes are in bold):

    For the muffin mix:
    175g caster sugar
    200g rhubarb, halved lengthways then diced
    2 tbsp sunflower oil
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla bean paste
    125g coconut yoghurt

    200g plain flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

    For the crumble topping:
    50g dark brown soft sugar
    50g plain flour
    25g porridge oats
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    50g dairy-free spread

    I followed the recipe instructions and baked mine for 18 minutes at 200 deg C (fan oven), and when I took them out the internal temperature read 99.1 deg C.

    I'm so pleased with them! The topping gives a lovely bit of crunch, and the cake underneath is really soft and moist. The rhubarb pieces didn't sink to the bottom, so it's definitely worthwhile chopping them fairly small.

    Those really look yummy! How did you keep the rhubarb from sinking to the bottom? It’s always hit or miss with with fruit. Sometimes it sinks, sometimes it doesn’t. It really irritates me when the fruit all sinks to the bottom. Whether it’s cake or muffins.

    I think it's because I cut them up quite small. I know what you mean though, I've had other recipes where I've had to try all sorts of tricks to stop the fruit sinking! But with this one I just cut them small and they stayed put - thankfully!

    My father in law is growing rhubarb in his garden so it'll be nice if I get to make these again with his home-grown rhubarb :)
