Peanut Butter Muffins - - Yummmmmm
Who wouldn't love to wake up to these?
It was a wonderful morning, I got everything done on my Morning Routine (FLY Lady) including making something yummy for our breakfast. The morning set the tone for the rest of the day and wouldn't you know it, the children got all their schoolwork done, plus chores, a walk and a few little fun extras -- AND we had a good dinner that was cleaned up in time for some great company that came over!! It was a great day! Do you think if I make muffins tomorrow that it will go just as nearly-perfect? (I have to say nearly-perfect because Dear Son 3 always tells me, "No, Mom, nothing is perfect except God.")
Try baking these tomorrow morning and see how your day goes! ;-)
Peanut Butter Muffins
Heat oven to 400F. Get out 1 egg to warm to room temperature. Butter Muffin tin.
In small bowl mix: 1 3/4 cups flour, 1 T. baking powder, 1/2 t. salt
In large bowl: whisk egg until lightly beaten. Whisk in 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, whisking until thick and smooth, about 2 minutes. (This is a very important step. It really aerates the batter making very light, melt-in-your-mouth muffins.) Whisk in 1/2 cup peanut butter until smooth. Whisk in 1 1/4 cups milk, 5 T. melted butter, 1 t. vanilla.
With wooden spoon, gently stir in flour mixture, being careful not to overmix. Spoon into buttered muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes. Allow the muffins to cool for 5-10 minutes before removing them from the tin.
