PBĀ & J muffins

Yields 1 dozen


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4-1/2 cup seedless grape jam


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. If you're not using paper muffin cups, spray a 12-piece muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Otherwise, place the muffin cups in the tins.
  3. Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, add the milk, eggs, peanut butter, butter and sugars.
  5. Combine the milk mixture into the dry mixture and beat on low speed with a mixer, just until combined.
  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, to halfway filled. Spread the batter evenly.
  7. Add 1-1/2 teaspoons of the grape jam to the muffins, spreading evenly.
  8. Top the muffins with the remaining batter and sprinkle with the granulated sugar.
  9. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins turn golden.
  10. Remove from the oven and allow the muffins to cool to the touch, then place them on a wire rack to cool completely.
