Sunday Love


I wish I could lay on the sofa as my kitten does! But I'm terribly busy making things for my upcoming craft show. It starts next Wednesday and lasts until Saturday, this is the longest one I have ever attended so it adds a bit of stresss I have to admit.

A couple of days ago I baked rhubarb muffins. I have lost track on how many rhubarb pies I have made this summer so I decided to give a try for muffins for a change (you might have noticed that I have an excess of rhubarb). Muffins turned out pretty good! If you want to try them, you can follow my blueberry muffin recipe I posted here. Just replace blueberries with rhubarb, add a teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of grounded cardamom. I think I used a bit more flour on these (something like 3 dl) and added even 1/2 dl milk. I never write my recipes down so these are estimates but I don't think my experiments never failed tremendously so you should be safe too. Oh, and once you serve them you can add either whipped cream or vanilla sauce on top of them (dairy products neutralize the oxalic acid in rhubarb).

Have a lovely Sunday!

yum yum! those muffins sounds good! And I love rhubarb :)

My grandmother just blanch them before putting them in pies, to remove the acidity. But I guess you know that as you have too much rhubarb on your hands :D

Love your photos also :)

Sounds delicious, wish I had rhubarb but it's probably a bit big for a balcony! So I'll make do with my tomatoes, basil, mint. Hmmm, mint muffins?

Mmmhh.. sounds yummy!! Can you still harvest rhubarb now? I thought, the season is over in June or July. Good luck with the fair!

Oh thanks everyone (I'm packing my car now, off to the craft show soon)!

Glasfaden: We harvest rhubarb here all summer. The summer season starts so much later up here than in the Central Europe.

I'll get back to you on Sunday!
