Easy-peasy savoury muffins recipe
- 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.
