Cheddar Cheese Muffins

This was my 1st attempt baking savoury muffins. We've bought some before from the shops and thought it was quite nice. My go at it turned out quite well. I modified from this original recipe i found online and halved the quantity. Here goes...


CHEDDAR CHEESE MUFFINS - makes 6 jumbo or 9 std
7/8 cup or 100g plain flour (preferably sifted)
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 small egg
1/2 cup milk
1/8 cup or 30g butter, melted (can also use olive oil)
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 or 9 small cubes cheddar cheese (quantity depends on how many muffins you are making)

1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and shredded cheese ; mix well. Make a well in the center of the mixture.
2. In another bowl, combine egg, milk, and melted butter; add to the flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. Spoon into greased muffin tins 1/3 full, place a small cube cheddar cheese, then spoon to two-thirds full.
3. Bake at preheated 180°C for 20 minutes.
4. Remove from oven and allow to cool on rack, before removing muffins from tins.

* you may need a higher temperature and longer time for bigger ovens, do watch the muffins during 1st attempt, this is my ideal temperature and duration for most of my muffin recipes.
* You may "sprinkle" some shredded cheese on the muffins after removing from the oven.
