I enjoy a muffin for breakfast. I often bake them on the weekends and store them in the freezer so that I can have them every morning through the week.
Because they're so simple to make, I like to change my muffin recipes up fairly often .This week we had stewed rhubarb in the fridge so I adapted one of my favourite recipes to incorporate it.
The muffins smelled heavenly while they were baking and turned out very well, with a nice bright flavour. My husband has been having them for breakfast and for lunch. They're not going to last through the week this time. :)
To make Rhubarb, Orange and Ginger muffins, you'll need:
- 2 eggs
- 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
- the zest of one large navel orange (about 1 Tablespoon)
- the juice of one large navel orange with enough stewed rhubarb added to make 1-1/2 cups total
- 1 cup canola oil (or other neutrally flavoured oil)
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups uncooked rolled oats (not instant)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup of finely diced candied ginger
In a seperate bowl, mix together the flour, rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger until well combined.
Add the candied ginger to the dry mixture. The pieces tend to stick to each other so you'll need to use your fingers to break them up, toss them through the mixture and ensure that they're coated with flour.
Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir just until combined. The batter will be lumpy.
Spoon the batter into oiled muffin cups, filling each cup almost to the top. I got 18 muffins out of this batch.
Bake the muffins on the center rack of at 350F for about 25 minutes, until they spring back when lightly touched. Cool the muffins in the pan for 10 minutes or so before transferring them to a rack to cool completely.
