Servings: 15 regular muffins
- 2 cups / 240g all-purpose or cake flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda/bicarbonate of soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ¼ cup / 60ml oil SEE NOTE 1
- 1 ¾ cup buttermilk or plain yogurt SEE NOTE 2
- 1 cup / 113g grated cheese SEE NOTE 3
- 2 cups vegetables chopped SEE NOTE 4
Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda (bicarbonate of soda), salt and black pepper in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine the oil and buttermilk.
Pour the oil mixture into the flour mixture and mix to combine.
Add in the grated cheese and 2 cups of any chopped veggies or other ingredients you prefer. I used feta, olives, red jalapenos, and chives.
Grease the muffin tin WELL. Even if you are using a non-stick pan, it should be well greased. I use cooking spray or lots of butter to grease the muffin tin. If you are lining the pan with paper cups, then those cups need to be sprayed as well.
Divide the batter in the muffin tin, filling each up to ¾ full.
Bake in a preheated oven of 320ºF ( 160ºC ) for between 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove from the oven and enjoy as is or with a spread of butter.
- Any neutral-tasting vegetable oil works in this recipe. I use either canola or sunflower oil
- If you do not have yoghurt or buttermilk, then just substitute it by adding 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to 1¾ cups of milk. Set aside for 5 minutes before using in the recipe.
- Use any cheese you have or prefer. I love using cheddar or mozzarella.
- 2 cups of any chopped veggies or other ingredients you prefer. I used feta, olives, red jalapenos, and chives. Give a try to ingredients like dried or fresh herbs, bacon bits, zucchini, chopped spinach or chives
