Rhubarb & Custard Muffins

Updated: May 11

Muffins are something we always see on our trips to America and something I love to eat and I love this time of year when rhubarb is readily available in the shops and in our gardens here in the UK.

The combination of rhubarb and custard is something I remember from when I was at school. We used to call into the sweet shop on the way home sometimes and rhubarb and custard sweets were one of my favourites. So I decided to make a muffin recipe based on these classic flavours.



It is very easy to make these muffins and it’s all made in a bowl so no need to get the stand mixer out for this recipe!


The sour cream thickens the mixture so the fruit doesn’t sink to the bottom and makes a lovely light muffin.

To start pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees centigrade (170 degrees fan) then put 10 muffin liners or 12 cupcake liners in a muffin tray.


Weigh all the flour, custard powder, baking powder and caster sugar into a large bowl. Then add the egg, sour cream, oil, milk and vanilla extract.



With a hand whisk mix until smooth and there are no traces of flour.



Fold in the rhubarb.



Then divide equally between the liners.



Bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out cleanly.
