Ingredients: 

  • 250g grated tasty cheese (approx 2 loose cups)

  • 2 cups of self-raising/rising flour (If you don't have S/R Flour, you can substitute with plain flour and baking powder. Add 2 tsp of baking powder to each cup of plain flour. Metric cup size 250ml)

  • 2 eggs (yogurt and buttermilk are good substitutes for eggs - use one-fourth cup (60 grams) of yogurt or buttermilk for each egg that needs to be replaced)

  • 1½ cups of milk

  • Small can of corn kernels (125g)

  • Half red capsicum

  • Large handful of baby spinach

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh basil leaves to add to the mix and on top (optional)

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (356°F)

     

  • Sift flour into a large bowl.

     

  • Whisk eggs, chop capsicum, spinach (and optional basil).

     

  • Make a well in the flour, add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until combined.

     

  • Spoon into a greased muffin tray (pop a basil leaf on top of each, optional) and bake for 25 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

Hints and Tips:

  • Mix and match the veggies used in the muffin to create your own favourites. Other veggies that work well are mushrooms, tomato (fresh or sundried), zucchini, broccoli, spring onions, etc.

  • Swap some of the tasty cheese with some crumbled feta cheese for an extra cheesy bite.
  • They will keep for up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge.
