Yum! Savory Cheddar Herb Muffins

May 10, 2010

I love muffins. Any kind. Especially savoury ones. With aged cheddar & fresh basil!

Cheddar Herb Muffins

Soft, cheesy, fragrant and delicious served warm.
Switch it up with any of the alternate ingredients listed below!
Makes 12 muffins

Combine in a large bowl:
2 cups plain flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp dried rosemary (preferably ground w/ mortar & pestle)
2 generous handfuls chopped fresh chives
1 generous handful chopped fresh basil
(or substitute fresh herbs of your choice: dill, parsley, oregano, thyme…)
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
250g grated cheddar (half a large block)

Combine and add to flour mix slowly until a stiff batter is formed:
250ml milk
1 egg
1/4 cup butter – melted

(I skipped these add ons. Stir in if desired: fried onions, minced garlic, crispy bacon bits, smoked ham, olives, sundried tomatoes, baby spinach leaves, roasted peppers, chopped jalapenos/other chillies, fried button mushrooms etc.)

Spoon equally between 12 lined muffin cups. Bake at 350 F /170 C for 35 mins until light golden brown.
Best enjoyed warm! With butter!
