Rhubarb crumble cupcakes

Wishing all my UK readers a lovely bank holiday! A three day weekend, more than any other weekend, is perfect for consuming the above. 

Homemade coconut scones anyone? (served with a cup of tea, naturally).
I have discovered that adding coconut milk to a smoothie makes it even more flavorsome, which is what I did with the avocado, banana and almond milk one photographed here. It's a great way to kick start the day! As is a boiled egg in an egg cup that comes prepared with its own hammer. (eaten with soldiers, of course)
Or, if brunch is more your thing, my new favourite crumpet topping is avocado and walnuts. So delicious.

Finally, today's recipe (which you may have gathered by the title) is for rhubarb crumble cupcakes. Made from freshly picked rhubarb from my back garden, these make the tastiest dessert.

To make them, you will need...
  • About 140g rhubarb
  • 60g butter
  • 60g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 60g wholemeal flour
  • 25g oats
What to do...
  • Cook the rhubarb beforehand. This takes about 20 minutes
  • and then mix together the butter and sugar
  • Beat in the egg and then combine half of your rhubarb.
  • Add the flour and then the rest of the rhubarb. 
  • Mix in the oats.
  • Now you can spoon your cupcake mixture into its cases. Once you've filled them up, sprinkle some more oats on top to give it more of a crumble effect.
  • Cook for about 15 minutes.
Best served with vanilla ice cream and a scatter of almonds. Enjoy :-)


  1. You always inspire to make better food choices. And your egg cup is soo cute! It comes with a tiny hammer even. How adorable is that? >.<


  2. Yes! We have an influx of rhubarb at the moment. Mum always boils it or makes plain crumble but crumble cupcakes sound much more fun!
