SERVING SUGGESTIONS FOR MEDITERRANEAN SAVOURY MUFFINS

Savoury muffins are perfect to serve with breakfast or brunch. And because they stay fresh for several days, they’re ideal for your kids’ and partner’s lunchboxes.

If you have a hunger pang in between meals during the day, one of these beauties will do just perfect. You can even spice up your afternoon tea with these savoury muffins instead of having something sweet.

Serve the muffins with a slather of butter when coming warm from the oven for ultimate enjoyment. And for some extra indulgence, sprinkle some cheese on top.

INGREDIENTS

  • butter or oil spray, for greasing
  • 2 cups (200g) cheddar cheese, shredded (or other cheese)
  • 75 g feta, crumbled
  • ½ cup green olives slices
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes strips
  • ½ cup roasted peppers, drained and chopped
  • ½ cup green onions, sliced

Dry ingredients

  • 2 cups (300g) flour (plain / all-purpose flour)
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda / bi-carb soda (sub 1½ tsp baking powder)
  • ½ tsp salt

Wet ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (250 ml) milk (full or low fat)
  • ¼ cup (60g) sour cream or plain yoghurt
  • ¼ cup (60ml) vegetable oil (or any plain flavoured oil)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/360⁰C.
  • Brush a 12 hole standard muffin tin generously with butter.
  • Whisk dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Whisk wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl. Mix 8 times.
  • Add cheese, feta, sun-dried tomato, capsicum, olives and green onion. Mix as few times as possible just to incorporate the remaining bits of flour – no more than 7 big stirs (secret to soft muffins).
  • Divide between 12 holes in the muffin tin. The batter should be thick and fill the muffin tin slightly mounded.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the muffins are golden and crusty and spring back when touched in the centre.
  • Cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack. Serve warm for the optimum experience!
