Fudge Nut Muffins
Fudge Nut Muffins – Makes 12
250g plain flour
4 tsp baking powder
85g caster sugar
6 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1 large egg, beaten
4 tbsp butter, melted
175 ml milk
150g vanilla fudge, cut into small pieces
3 tbsp roughly chopped unsalted peanuts
Line a 12 cup muffin pan with muffin paper cases.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Stir in the caster sugar. Add the peanut butter and stir until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Place the egg, milk and butter in a separate bowl and beat until blended. Lightly stir in the fudge pieces.
Divide the mixture evenly between the muffin cases.
Sprinkle the chopped peanuts on top and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees (conventional) 180 degrees (fan) for 20 – 25 minutes or until well risen and firm to the touch.
Remove the muffins from the oven and cool for 2 minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.
