80ml of vegetable oil
One egg
250ml of buttermilk
175g rhubarb, finely sliced

½ teaspoon of cinnamon

Makes 12

Preheat your oven to 200ºc and line a muffin try with muffin cases. In a large bowl, mix the sugar, oil, egg and buttermilk and stir in the rhubarb and walnuts. Sprinkle in the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon. Fold together quickly until the mixture is just blended. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and sprinkle with a little Demerara sugar for added crunch. Bake for 35-40 minutes and cool on a wire rack. These muffins taste so good when still warm. Enjoy!
