It's clear by now that I love me some peanut butter. How happy was I when a friend sent me this recipe to try out? I loved peanut butter and jam sandwiches growing up so how cool is it to have that combination in muffin form?
350g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 eggs, beaten
80g soft demerara sugar
2 heaped tbsp of peanut butter
110g butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
Jam (use whatever kind is your favourite, but strawberry or raspberry are good)
Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F) Gas Mark 6
Sieve the flour and baking powder together in a bowl and add the salt. In a separate bowl mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, peanut butter, sugar and melted butter until smooth. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Line your muffin tin with muffin cases. Place a spoonful of muffin mixture into the bottom of the cases and smooth with the back of your spoon. Place a rounded teapsoon of jam in the cases, then top with another spoonful of muffin mixture so that the jam if totally covered. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a cake tester or tooth pick comes out clean when inserted. Allow to cool completely before eating, the hot jam will burn! One batch makes 12 muffins.
