Savory muffins to spice up your breakfast
  • Cooking spray - mine is olive oil
  • 1/2 a cup of parmesan cheese, grated (set aside 2 tbs for topping)
  • 100g (3/4 cup) of plain flour (all purpose)
  • 1 large egg
  • 90ml of milk (1/3 cup + 1 tbs)
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic (equal to 1/2 a clove)
  • 1/4 cup of bacon
  • 1 tsp of minced chilli
  • 1/3 tsp of salt
  • 1/4 tsp of black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 175 C (350 F)
  2. Spray a muffin tray with the cooking spray - I use a silicone 6 cup muffin tray.
  3. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, the parmesan (less the 2tbs set aside), garlic, bacon, chilli, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
  4. In another bowl mix the milk, eggs and oil.
  5. Add the egg, milk and oil mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  6. Spoon the mixture in to the muffin tray, dividing as evenly as possible.
  7. Sprinkle the 2 tbs of parmesan cheese on top.
  8. Pop into the oven for about 20 minutes. To check they are cooked insert a toothpick into the middle of one and if comes back clean the muffins are cooked.
  9. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
