RHUBARB HAZELNUT MUFFINS
A perfect way to use frozen rhubarb slices.
1½ cups diced fresh rhubarb, or 2 cups frozen sliced rhubarb
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons red currant jelly
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup chopped toasted hazelnuts
If you are using frozen rhubarb, spread it on the counter for about 5 minutes until it is thawed enough to finely dice. While rhubarb thaws, heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease (14 regular size or 48 miniature) muffin cups, or use paper or foil baking cups.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In a medium-size bowl, whisk egg, brown sugar and currant jelly until smooth (jelly will not completely dissolve). Whisk in milk, butter and vanilla. Stir in the filberts and finely diced rhubarb. Pour over dry ingredients and gently fold in with a rubber spatula just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Scoop batter into muffin cups. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, or until light brown and springy to the touch in the center. Turn out onto a rack and cool at least 15 minutes before serving. Yields 14 regular-sized muffins (or 48 miniatures).
