It was time I used something seasonal I haven't used before and here's the outcome of my challenge :) I've had rhubarb before but I never actually considered cooking or baking with it before. But since it's in season now and the supermarkets are full of it - why not try something new! A couple of years back I bought the cookbook "Off the Shelf" by Donna Hay. I loved the book at the time and I tried a couple of recipes but somehow I forgot about having it for a while. Now, however, I rediscovered it and it already inspired me for a new blog post! I'm really happy with the outcome and I have found my new favourite basic muffin recipe! I used Donna Hay's blueberry muffin recipe from the book as a foundation and adapted it to fit with rhubarb.
