The country market today.

This morning was the country market at the town hall. It's small, quick but so busy and popular. I am still impressed!! I would love to post pictures about it but I am not sure the people there would be really confortable to have that new girl making photographs of their "ordinary life" (which make it even more fascinating, it's what is all about - I know).
Well, so instead I can let you know what I brought there today in my basket: Irish Soda Bread, Treacle Tart, Big and Baby Xmas Cakes, Rich fruit cakes, Banana and Chocolate muffins, Poppy seeds and Lemon cake, and finally Crunchy Peanut Butter muffins.
And yes, you are lucky today, I'm giving you the recipe just after the pictures. I love Peanut butter recently, I did know it without to really know it... a new addiction :) Did you know it's rich in protein? 
...and the pretty good thing, I came back with an empty basket, only B. won't be happy ;)


Crunchy Peanut Butter Muffins

12 Muffins
280gr  flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
115g soft dark brown sugar
2 medium eggs
175ml  milk
6 tbsp sunflower oil
175gr crunchy peanut butter

50g chopped unsalted peanuts
3 tbsp brown sugar

Make the topping first. It’s really simple. Chop your peanuts if all you have is whole peanuts. (Chopping peanuts is fun!) Then, in a small bowl, mix the peanuts and brown sugar together. Set aside and start preheating your oven to 200°C

For the muffins, mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into the well. Mix, but don’t overmix. If you overmix, the texture of the muffins will be off. So, just mix until the dry ingredients are wet. It will all clump together a bit in the bowl. This isn’t really a wet muffin batter, so don’t be too concerned if your mixture isn’t fully mixed and you feel like you might be overmixing. You probably aren’t.

Spoon the batter into a greased or lined muffin tin. Sprinkle with the topping and pop into the oven for 20 minutes.
