Muffins Overload

Brother was back to stay with us for the past 2 weeks, so I was not able to make anything complicated with the 2 active twins. Muffins are the easiest to make and mimimal washing required. So I made muffins for them to eat.

The popular Nigella's Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins.

These Peanut Butter Muffins comes from 《孟老师的100道小蛋糕》. I also make the nutella version, substituting peanut butter with nutella.

Special edition muffins! Made by combining the remaining batters of peanut butter and nutella so that I can make them into another 2 cups without wasting. One of them looked as if it had erupted, I think the consistency of the 2 batters are different, that's why it turned out like this!

I'm not a fan of dry-mix-wet method type of muffins. But they are really quick and easy to make to fill up stomach when you feel hungry in-between meals.
