Peanutbutter Chocolate chip muffins

Yet another experiment for work.  I try to make something different each week.  Everyone seems to love Peanut Butter and of course not many don't like Chocolate.  These very excellent and very filling, I will for sure be making them again.

2 Cups Flour
1 tbsp. Baking Powder
1½ tsp. Salt
1¼ cups Jif Creamy Peanut Butter
1.5 cups Nestle Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup Milk
⅔ cup Sugar
⅓ cup Canola Oil
2 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Stir the flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
Add the milk, eggs, sugar, peanut butter, chocolate chips, vanilla, and oil… and mix until moistened.
Fill up muffin liners in muffin pan ¾ full – almost full.
Sprinkle the top of each muffin with a little more sugar.
Bake at for approx. 18 minutes, or until done.

Orange Blueberry Quick Bread

Our local grocery store had blueberries on sale so I've made a couple of things over the last couple of weeks.  This is a very good choice for a breakfast bread or a dessert for after dinner with a scoop of ice cream.  It goes together very quickly and freezes well.  Hope you give it a try.

 1/2 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. grated orange zest
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. plain yogurt
1 Tbl. milk
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. blueberries

Orange Cream Cheese Icing
From: Jenn@eatcakefordinner
2 oz. cream cheese
zest of 1/2 an orange
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 - 2 Tbl. fresh orange juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the grated orange zest, vanilla, yogurt and milk and mix until combined. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the blueberries and toss to coat in flour mixture.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until just combined, batter will be very thick. Scoop batter into a greased 9x5-inch loaf pan. Bake for about 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If top starts to get too brown while baking, tent with a piece of foil over the top. Remove from oven and cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool. Top with orange cream cheese icing, slice and serve. Makes 1 loaf.

For the Orange Cream Cheese Icing: Microwave cream cheese for about 15 seconds or until very soft. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until smooth and creamy, adding as much orange juice as needed to reach desired icing consistency. Drizzle over cooled loaf.

Lemon Pound Cake w/lemon glaze

It's been really hot here 3 digit's hot!!!!  This sounded really cool so thought I'd make it for my Monday Work Treat.  It was a big hit and several said it would be great with blueberry's or strawberry's on the side with some whip cream.  A food for thought.

Lemon Pound Cake

3 cups all-purpose  flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup of sour cream
4 tablespoons lemon juice
Zest of 2 lemons ( about 2 tbsps.)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees
1. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in the sour cream, lemon juice, vanilla, and lemon zest.
2. Mix half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Mix in the buttermilk and then add in the remaining flour mixture. Mix just until the flour disappears. Pour the cake batter into a bundt pan that has been generously sprayed with baking spray.
3. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.  Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Turn the cake over on a cake platter. Spread half of the lemon glaze over the warm cake so that the glaze can soak into the cake. Let the cake cool completely and drizzle the remaining glaze over the cake.

Lemon Glaze

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoon lemon juice, at room temperature
1. Cream the butter and slowly add powdered sugar and lemon juice. Beat well until the glaze is a creamy smooth
