Tasting Tuesdays: Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Chip Muffins

Tasting Tuesdays: Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate Chip Muffins

I know the title says muffins.

But can we go ahead and call them muffinscones instead?

Yep–that’s a made up word. But this was one of the weirder recipes I’ve tried and I can’t quite figure out why, so they get a name that’s equally as odd as the finished product itself.

This is from a super pretty English book called The Perfect Start to Your Day. Tonia George is a food writer and photographer and man, it shows! The photographs in this book are really stunning, and the rest of the recipes sound delicious.

And don’t get me wrong–it’s not that these muffins aren’t delicious–they’re just not very sweet, and they don’t really look like muffins. Truly, they’re like soft mini-scones.

I tend to like my baked goods on the very sweet side, so I think that could be why these weren’t a hit for me. Then again, the British baking recipes I’ve used tend to be less sweet than American ones are, so it might just be my taste buds.

I wonder if it’s because I used Greek yogurt instead of regular old yogurt that they turned out more scone-y? Or perhaps it was the crunchy peanut butter? (Which, by the way, despite my confusion over the title…really does go well with the milk chocolate chips. Mmm.)

Either way, if try your hand at the recipe below, let me know if they turn out muffin-y or scone-y. I would love to know what I did to make them turn out this way!

As always, major thanks to the lovely ladies at Anthropologie Milwaukee! The set-up was so beautiful this month (seriously, those marble cake stands!? I think they must be sold out since I can’t even find them online), and you guys are just the sweetest.

By the way… I am really excited because next month is the FIRST ANNIVERSARY of Tasting Tuesdays!!! (Caps and excessive exclamation points entirely necessary.) I can’t believe I’ve been baking my way through Anthro’s cookbook collection for a whole year! We have some super exciting things planned for the celebration, as well as for next year, so mark your calendars for September 18! I hope to see you there!!
