After reading masak-masak and boo_licious‘s blog posts about peanut butter cupcakes, I had been hankering for peanut butter stuffs. However, I am too lazy to bake real cupcakes and opted for muffin mix which I bought from Cooking Island.
Muffin is somewhat less fattening and healthier than butter cupcakes because it uses only flour, sugar, less number of eggs, milk and a small cup of cornoil. However, muffin is best eaten when it is fresh out of the oven or it will turn quite dry due to the amount of baking soda and little oil.
This is the second time I bought the muffin mix from Cooking Island. I like their orange, poppy seed mix rather than the blueberry version. It takes just two steps of mixing, really easy peasy. I put a dollop of peanut butter into the individual muffin and give it a twirl with the chopstick before popping them into the oven. (thanks to boo and babe for this great idea!)
Fifteen minutes later, I have one batch of the most delicious muffins. It costs mere cents as I made 18 muffins for just a few Ringgit. It tastes way better than those sold in bakeries and best of all, they are available hot.
The sticky, creamy taste of the peanut butter mixed with the tangy flavour of orange and orange peels plus the crunchy surprises of the poppy seeds is pure heaven.Ã‚Â Take it with a cup of freshly brewed tea, I feel like IÃ‚Â taking afternoon English tea in some posh hotel.
Muffin is very easy to make from scratch.Ã‚Â Here is one of my earlier muffin recipe using oats and banana.
