Cheddar cheese and corn muffins

Average: 4.5 (2 votes)
Serves: 
6

Variations: 

For a wholemeal version use organic self-raising wholemeal flour – this will provide additional fibre and essential nutrients and will help to sustain energy levels for longer.

Bacon, cheese and sweetcorn: Lightly fry a couple of rashers of streaky bacon until golden. Chop, then add to the muffin mixture

Cheese and tomato:  Omit the sweetcorn and add 1 chopped tomato.

Method: 
  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/gas mark 6.
  2. Mix together the self-raising flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, grated cheese and sweetcorn in a bowl.
  3. Melt the butter then mix in the mustard, yogurt, milk, egg and chives. Pour the cheese mixture into the flour and mix briefly to combine.  Spoon a small amount of the batter into lightly greased muffin tins.  Place a piece of cheese in the centre of each muffin then top with the remaining batter. 
  4. Bake in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Remove and place on a wire rack. 
  5. Serve warm.
