Rhubarb Muffins with Cardamom Streusel Recipe - CHOW

INGREDIENTS
For the streusel:

6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/8 teaspoon fine salt
2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter (1/4 stick), cut into small pieces

For the muffins:

1 1/2 cups small-dice rhubarb (about 8 ounces)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt

INSTRUCTIONS
For the streusel:

Whisk the flour, sugar, cardamom, and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Add the butter and combine with your fingers, rubbing the butter into the flour until mostly incorporated but some small pieces remain. (The streusel is ready when it holds together in large clumps when squeezed—it will still be fairly dry.) Refrigerate until ready to use.


For the muffins:

Heat the oven to 375°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Coat a 12-well muffin pan with butter or line it with paper cupcake liners.
Toss the rhubarb with 1/4 cup of the sugar in a medium bowl and let the mixture sit until the rhubarb releases some juice, about 5 minutes.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cardamom in a large bowl until evenly combined. Place the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, butter, egg, vanilla, and yogurt in a separate medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix just until combined, about 25 to 30 strokes. Stir in the reserved rhubarb, about another 10 to 15 strokes. (The mixture will be thick.)
Place a rounded 1/4 cup of batter into each muffin well (the wells will be full) and evenly sprinkle the streusel over top. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. Place the muffin pan on a wire rack and let the muffins cool for 15 minutes in the pan. Remove the muffins from the pan and serve warm or let cool to room temperature.

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by! Feel free to dig deep into the posts, much treasures there. And leave your comments, I'd appreciate your words....] [P.S. Borrowed articles/photos can be deleted anytime, please advise.Thank you.]
