GARY'S GREAT MUFFIN CHALLENGE
(Gary's maple syrup oat muffins with a ton of blueberries.)
OK, there has been talk here of late about muffins, and peanut butter. It is possible that I live on peanut butter and jam sandwiches, and muffins. The question is, as a person who loves muffins, is there a recipe for a muffin with a scoop of peanut butter and jam in the middle??????
You ask around and look around and find that there are plenty of recipes with a scoop of jam inside, and some that also mix peanut butter into the batter. I want them together in the middle of a muffin, not mixed into the batter at all.
This recipe link, number 4 is most helpful.
It tells us basically take any muffin recipe, dump in the scoops of jam and peanut, bake an extra few minutes.
I am on my way this morning with Susan and Ellen, two of my Cornell pottery students, to an art museum, clay supplier and biker BBQ bar for lunch, and will make these muffins later today. I am looking for advice. Anybody tried anything like this before????
(YES, I said BBQ biker joint for lunch, I really did, and plan to take PICTURES too)
