Do these muffins with rhubarb and white chocolate not look fantastic tasteful ? And the answer to this hypothetical question is YES !!!!
I have a good Estonian friend and work colleague, who is a keen follower of my blog and therefore know, that I have passion for using as well as eating rhubarb. She has in this connection shared this recipe from Estonia with me on these muffins with rhubarb and white chocolate, which she actually had to translate from Estonian into English, so I could bake these muffins as well. A BIG THANK YOU to my Estonian friend for doing this, even though you have a very busy life :-)
I baked these muffins in silicone form, I noticed, that the muffins are quiet moist, so next time I will bake these muffins in paper forms, so they are more easy to remove from the muffin forms.
