Easy-peasy savoury muffins ingredients

  • 1½ cups self-raising flour
  • 2 cups tasty cheese, grated
  • 150g ham, diced
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • ½ brown onion, grated
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup fruit chutney


  • Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a large Texas (6 x ¾ cup capacity) muffin tin and line the bases with baking paper. Alternatively, use large cafe-style muffin cases, found in the baking aisle of large supermarkets.
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the grated cheese, zucchini, ham and onion to the flour and mix well to combine.
  • Whisk the milk, egg and chutney in a separate jug or small bowl until well combined.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry flour and veg mix and add the milk mixture in the well. Using a spatula, gently mix together until just combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin holes.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
  • Stand in the muffin tin for three minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.


  • This recipe yields six large muffins and is suitable for freezing.
  • Feel free to add extra vegetables to the recipe – chopped chives, corn kernels and chopped sun-dried tomato all make tasty additions.
