Are you familiar with the significance of October 16? Friendly clue: it has a lot to do with our sticks, but it has a lot to do with generally everything that can be found on the table. If your guess was – World Food Day, you were right!
World Food Day was established as a reminder that our diet should be healthier as well as to encourage the initiatives enabling less hunger in the world. To honour this holiday, for today we suggest a sweet recipe suitable for sharing with your neighbours, colleagues and everyone you meet on your way to work!
To make 20-24 muffins, you need the following ingredients:
- 75 g of cocoa
- 160 ml of hot coffee
- 160 ml of buttermilk
- 125 ml of oil
- 1 egg and 1 separate yolk
- 190 g of flour
- 350 g of sugar
- Baking soda, vanilla sugar and pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Stir cocoa and coffee in one, and other liquid ingredients in another bowl, gradually adding the solid ingredients in the end. Then slowly add cocoa/coffee mix to that mixture. Grease the muffin pan and pour up to ⅔ of the mixture into each mould. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
While the muffins are baking, prepare the peanut butter cream. You will need the following ingredients:
- 250 ml of water
- 400 g of sugar
- 1 bigger egg and 5 yolks
- 680 g of cold butter
- 180 g of peanut butter
- Vanilla extract and pinch of salt for flavour enhancement
In order to prepare the cream, make a sugar and water syrup in one, and mix the egg and yolks into a firm cream in the other bowl. Gradually add the syrup to the eggs, but carefully, so they don’t turn into scrambled eggs. Add butter and continue mixing. Finally, add peanut butter, vanilla extract and salt.
Fill with cream and pour melted chocolate on top of the baked muffins. As a final step, sprinkle the muffins with a mix of crushed Prima sticks and finely chopped peanuts.
