Easy Cheese Muffins

Easy Cheese Muffins

One of my all time favourite recipes is these yummy cheese muffins. I remember waking up over the weekend when I was a kid, to the amazing smell of cheese muffins, usually baked by my dad, but sometimes by my mum as well. They also remind me of my gran on my dad's side (Goko or Goks as she is fondly called by all of her grandchildren). Whenever we went to tea with Goks, she would have cheese muffins and crumpets. She would then mix butter and syrup to make a paste/spread and we would eat muffins and crumpets with butter and syrup - there is nothing more delicious!

So, in memory of childhood and to honour Goks, who unfortunately is no longer able to bake, here's my take on yummy cheese muffins:

Yummy Cheese Muffins

150g grated cheese (or more, if you like cheese)
1.5 cups of self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
Garlic salt and mixed herbs to taste
1 teaspoon English Mustard (the non-powdered variety)


1. Sieve the flour, then add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix lightly.

2. Mix all liquid ingredients together (the mustard counts as liquid).

3. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together.

4. Use spray and cook, or some equivalent, on a muffin pan that makes 12 muffins.

5. Spoon the muffin mix into the muffin pan.
6. Bake at 180 deg C for +- 30 mins.

* You can sprinkle a bit of grated cheese on top of the muffins once they've been spooned into the pan to give them some extra cheesy yumminess.

  1. I still have these all the time! Dad makes them as a snack when he's hungry, and mum makes them with tea sometimes. She puts chives or something in there, too.

  2. Definitely a family thing, I think! :)
