The Victorians were obsessed with rhubarb. Introduced at the time of Queen Victoria’s coronation, the commemorative Victorian variety of rhubarb was easy to grow, reliably robust and consistently sweet and tender, Victoria rhubarb was a runaway smash hit from the start.
Rhubarb puffs are a great way to use rhubarb without being too tart. Enjoy with tea, brunch or breakfast. They are a cross between a muffin and a biscuit.
Originally made with shortening I have lightened them up using applesauce which also makes them really moist.
