Peanut butter Muffins!
Welcome to another week of baking! How have you enjoyed January's installments so far?
This week, I go nuts for peanuts! I have made this twice and I tried out the muffins with strawberry jam: yes, my very own peanut butter and jelly sandwich equivalent! Sooooo good! (Sorry)
This recipe -courtesy of Catherine Atkinson's "Muffins Galore" is filled to the brim with peanuts...well, almost! I added 4 tablespoons of peanuts to the muffin mix instead of 2 and used an extra 2 tbspns for the topping. I really like peanuts though! Enjoy! (Ps: for most recipes which calls for milk, I use Almond or Oat milk - lactose-free alternatives).
Makes 12 muffins
Prep time: 20-25 minutes
Baking time: 16-18 minutes
300g Plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 tablespoons Finely chopped unsalted, roasted Peanuts
90g Soft light brown sugar
200g Smooth Peanut butter
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon Demerara sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 190oC/170oC Fan/375oF/Gas mark 5. Grease a
12-cup muffin tin or line the cups with paper muffin cases.
2. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir in 2
tablespoons of the chopped peanuts (I used 4, oops) and the brown
sugar. Add the peanut butter and rub in until the mixture resembles
3. In a separate bowl or jug, mix together the milk, the vegetable oil and
eggs. Add the wet ingredients all at once to the dry ingredients and mix
briefly until just combined.
4. Spoon the batter into the prepare muffin cups, dividing it evenly.
Combine the remaining chopped peanuts and demerara sugar, then
sprinkle this mixture over the tops of the muffins.
5. Bake in the oven for 16-18 mintues, or until risen and golden. Cool in the
tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or cold.
As I mentioned above, you can serve this with some jam to make a lovely peanut butter-and-jelly muffin of it. By itself, it really hits the spot for a peanut fix. And the roasted peanuts on top are yummy. Enough of me gushing about this, try it our yourself and let me know how it goes!
