Potluck Savoury Muffins

Tanya once again sent me a too good to be true recipe. So good in fact that all of her muffins were eaten before she could take a photo.

So I decided that I couldnt post the recipe without giving you a photo and I whipped up a batch this evening.

When Tanya says that it takes 10 min to prep and 20 min to bake she wasnt lying.

Quick and yummy, my idea of good food!


  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 200g red pepper (Tanya doesn’t eat peppers so she substituted for 200g ham, or bacon, a bit of onion or spring onion etc… the options are endless!)
  • 100g chopped mushrooms
  • 100g cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 60ml vegetable oil
  • 350ml skim milk
  • Non-Stick Spray


  • Preheat oven to 200°C
  • Sift together the dry ingredients.
  • Add in the mushrooms, spices, parsley and grated cheese.
  • Whisk together the wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients.
  • Mix until just combined, the mixture should still look lumpy.
  • Spoon into a muffin tin that has been coated with non-stick spray and bake in a 200°C oven for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, turn onto a wire rack to cool and serve.

They smelled so good that I had to take one straight out the oven, slice it open, slather it in butter and eat it up.  I burned my fingers adn my tongue but boy was it worth it!

Oh, Tanya said it makes 12, I managed to get 22 muffins but not all of them were the same size.  So be prepared to use 2 muffin trays.
