Cheese muffins

Cheesse muffins

Any time is snack time and these very easy to make cheese muffins are musts to have around the house. Pop one or two into lunch boxes for the kids, take a few to work and have them with cream cheese, add more cheese and perhaps some ham, these are great.

They freeze very well and thaw in a short space of time, so make a batch or two this weekend. All week you will have a smile on your face 🙂

Add a handfull of fresh herbs for a difference or a 1/2 teaspoon of paprika for a little something different. (Makes 12 muffins)

What you need

1 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder, yes tablespoon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
1 large egg
1/4 cup melted butter

The process
Heat your oven to 190 Celsius and lightly butter a muffin tray. If you have cookie cups, insert a cookie cup into each space.

In a large bowl, add all of the dry ingredients. Flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In another bowl, add the egg and milk and whisk together well. Now add the melted butter and whisk to combine.

Add the egg mixture along with the cheese to the dry ingredients and stir together with a metal spoon until well combined.

Spoon the mixture equally into the 12 spaces and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove and allow to cool a little before digging in.
