#Recipe – Peanut butter cupcakes with a surprise

#Recipe – Peanut butter cupcakes with a surprise

SKIPPY® sent us two tubs of their yummy Peanut Butter: Extra Crunchy and Creamy. We love Peanut Butter cupcakes, funnily enough I can't eat it out of the jar (unlike my husband). It is delicious in cupcakes and muffins. So, Hubby has been making Super Chunky toast, whilst I have been busy baking. This is my fun recipe with a surprise centre! Can you guess what is inside?

#Recipe – Rye hot cross bun loaf

Did you know that the government recommends we eat 30g of fibre a day? One way to do this easily is to up the intake of Whole Grain. I am a big fan of overindulging at breakfast time, when I do eat breakfast that is. When I came across this hot cross bun loaf, I just couldn’t resist it. It’s a great family friendly breakfast recipe too. It is really yummy with margarine at breakfast, or a nice dollop of Jam. Don’t forget the cup of tea too!
