Phantom Rhubarb Streusel Muffins
Phantom Rhubarb Muffins, so named because they tend to disappear quickly, are the perfect way to open the season of cooking with local fruit. I realize that rhubarb is technically a vegetable, but since it’s generally used in sweet preparations, we’ll place it in the fruit category. It’s the perfect recipe for the aspiring young chef in your house since all it requires is two bowls and a spatula and takes more time to assemble the ingredients than actually preparing the muffins. Since they’re so quick to prepare, you won’t mind that they’ve vanished by the end of the day!
Rhubarb Almond Cake
What a pleasant surprise it is every year when you glance out at what has been a mostly barren garden over the past winter months, and BAM- seemingly overnight a crop of fresh, local Rhubarb appears! This beautiful Bon Apetit cake recipe caught my eye with it’s crystallized sugar crust and strips of vibrant purplish-red local rhubarb.
