Beyond appearences they are nutty and yummy.
I love peanut butter and i love cake, so thought I'd mix them both together.
Took a basic muffin recipe, but added half a jar or crunchy peanut butter. tut tut.
I then made some frosting using icing sugar, peanut butter and a wee bit of butter. it was extremely yummy, but very sweet.
Still managed to eat 9 out of 12 though. tut tut.
Once I make these again and work out the exact recipe, i'll turn this into to a how-to.
heat oven to 190 degrees c
melt the butter and peanut butter in a sauce pan over a low heat
sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl, lightly beat in the sugar
in another bowl combine the milk, egg, melted butter and peanut butter
make a well in the bowl of dry ingredients (flour, sugar) and add the wet ones (milk, egg, butter)
mix until flour is moistened
the mixture will be a bit lumpy, you don't need it to be smooth
divide the batter in to 12 cases
bake for 25-40 mins, well until golden on top
take out and allow to cool
now the topping
cream the extra peanut butter and icing sugar in a bowl, add honey and vanilla essence
beat in enough milk to make it smooth and spreadable
frost you muffins...
