Peanut Butter Muffins

Peanut Butter Muffins

This week’s recipe, as promised in my newsletter this past Wednesday, is a special treat sent in by Mrs. Loretta Baker. Mrs. Loretta says:

“Our family doesn’t do Christmas dinner on Christmas Day, instead we do breakfast.  I usually fix sausage logs, various muffins (peanut butter, blueberry, applesauce), sausage balls, fruit, and sometimes quiche. I just put everything out and everyone just sort of eats when they want to all during the morning.”

This recipe for peanut butter muffins is one of her family favorites!

1 3/4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk

Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Mix sugar with peanut butter until well blended. Beat egg and add to peanut butter mixture. Beat until smooth. Add flour alternately with buttermilk. Beat after each addition until batter is smooth. Spoon batter into a well-greased and floured bread pan. Bake at 350 degrees until done. Makes one loaf or 12 medium muffins. (I sometimes use mini muffin pans.  Just watch closely so they don’t burn.)
