Top tips....

Use the excess rhubarb syrup to add to coffees.

The syrup is great for a rhubarb gin cocktail, or frozen into ice cubes and placed in drinks.

Try Blueberries, Raspberries, cooked apple or banana in place of rhubarb.

Use fresh rhubarb by peeling rinsing and cut into 2" pieces before microwaving or pan cooking in water and sugar for 5-10 minutes.

The crumble mix can be placed on top beforehand which gives a more rustic look to the cupcakes, you will find a little of the crumble falls in the centre whcih gives a crunch all the way through.

To remove the cupcake from the case, use a spoon inside the top and edge around the case pushing down as you go around the case, this removes all the delicious cake and crumble, place on a dish and top with custard or vanilla icecream.

Use a little less filling and top with custard straight into the case.

Dust with icing sugar.

delicious hot or cold.

Freezes well in an airtight container. ( if theres any left! )
