Cinnamon Chai, Peanut Butter, Jam & Nutella Muffins & ‘Oh Comely’

I was in the mood to make some muffins today and wanted to try and concoct a recipe that would use up some of my ‘near the end’ jars of spreads.

They turned out to be very tasty and included Crunchy Peanut Butter, Cherry Conserve and Nutella plus some extra chocolate.

I managed to take advantage of a short sunny spell this afternoon for a cup of cinnamon chai with a muffin and a read of the latest issue of ‘Oh Comely’ magazine that arrived yesterday. A little bit of Sunday bliss πŸ™‚


(preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas Mark 6 & line 12 hole tin with muffin cases)


  1. 280 g plain flour
  2. 1 tbsp baking powder
  3. pinch of salt
  4. 115 g soft brown sugar
  5. 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  6. 2 medium eggs (room temp)
  7. 200 ml buttermilk (or yoghurt)
  8. 6 tbsp sunflower oil (or 85g melted & cooled butter)
  9. 150 g of favourite spreads – e.g. peanut butter; jam; nutella etc
  10. 100 g chopped up chocolate (I used white chocolate)


  • Sieve ingredients 1-5 into a large bowl
  • Lightly beat the eggs and combine with ingredients 7-9
  • Gently stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients to combine – don’t over-mix
  • Stir in the chocolate chunks
  • Divide mixture between muffin cases
  • Bake for 20 minutes

Eat and enjoy πŸ™‚

    Looks lovely! Nice china, nice cakes…I too love ‘Oh Comely’ – I just wish it wasn’t called ‘Oh Comely’!

    Such a good idea, I normally just attack the peanut butter jar with a butter knife and eat it in the spot!
