Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!

I only had one egg left when I went to make buns today, so I had to find a recipe that needed just one egg. I flicked through my books and found a Snickers and Peanut Butter Mufffins recipe in Nigella's Domestic Goddess. I don't keep Snickers bars about my person, but I always have dark choc chips to hand for baking, hence the change. I also halved Nigella's recipe, to make buns rather than muffins, but it only yielded nine buns. Anyway! Here we go:

I used my Orla Kiely bowl for the day that's in it

Peanut butter & choc chip buns


125g plain flour
3 tablespoons caster sugar
3/4 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons peanut butter
30g butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
90ml milk
50g dark choc chips


·         Preheat oven to 200˚C
·         Line a 12-space bun tin (my mix made 9 buns)
·         Throw all the dry ingredients into a bowl, mix
·         Add the peanut butter and mix until you have a breadcrumby texture
·         Add the melted butter and egg to the milk and stir gently into the bowl
·         Mix in the chocolate chips
·         Plop the mixture into the bun cases using two spoons
·         Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, until golden on top and firm to the (light) touch
·         Cool on a wire rack
