Mini-cheese muffins

I saw this recipe for easy cheesy recipes on Stuff a couple of days ago and thought I'd try baking the mini cheese muffins. I'm keen to fill the freezer with baking and snacks to take to work or on some of our upcoming weekends away. This recipe makes 24 mini muffins. I used my new silicon bakeware and made 12 average sized muffins.

Mini cheese muffins

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese
  • sprinkle of dried mixed herbs (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC and grease muffin pans.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne into a medium bowl.
  3. Measure the milk into a small bowl. Add the egg and whisk together.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture and the grated cheese.
  5. Stir until all the ingredients are just combined. Don't over-mix and don't worry about lumps.
  6. Place spoonfuls of the mixture evenly into the greased muffin pans.
  7. Sprinkle a little extra grated cheese or dried mixed herbs over the top of each muffin.
  8. Place into the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until they have lightly browned and the tops spring back when lightly pressed down.
  9. Remove from the oven, cool slightly, tip out of the tray and serve hot or cold.

Sounds so delicious! I'm definitely looking around for some snacks to take to work. Great idea. :)

Important tip: it's 1 tablespoon of baking powder, not 1 teaspoon ... very important. I now have cheese muffin pancakes! They still taste good, though.
